Floor Plan--Please critique NYC apt.
I am planning on renovation a NYC, second floor 1200 sq ft apt. Currently, kitchen is 11 ft x10 ft.
This layout was done 12 years ago when I moved in. 2 bedrooms on the left sided below. Living room on the right side with kitchen and dining room in the middle.
Here is the enlargement of the living room and kitchen that I plan on renovating.
I plan to make the kitchen smaller by moving the pennisula closer to the stove, from 7ft to 4 ft. I don't have enough space to put dishwasher and sink against one wall, hence, the corner sink. See below. I am also putting in new shelves/cabinet on the wall against the front window in the living room. And I like to get rid of the closet and put in desk space for a couple people in the living room ( adjacent to the staircase). One cook in the house, BTW. Any input will be much appreciated. Thank you.
