We are closing on a 1949 house in a few weeks, and I am starting to get my thoughts together on the kitchen layout, since it will obviously have to be done relatively soon (I'll get temp appliances for a bit). The space is about 10x10, and I'm currently thinking we won't change the footprint, although walls can be opened up.
This is the view from the door to the dining room. I am considering opening the wall on the right up to make a pass-through to the dining room and putting a 36" deep peninsula/buffet in, with drawers on the kitchen side and glass-front cabinets on the dining room side:
This is the view from the wall with the window. I think I will probably have to stay with the corner sink, but am thinking of a farmhouse sink.
Any thoughts? I need ideas on how to make this space as efficient as I can! I know that I want as many drawers as possible, and of course need to get a dishwasher in here somplace. I am open to shutting off/moving the window, but still don't think I could have cabinets on that wall without blocking the door to the family room that can be seen on the left-hand side of the first picture. I considered stealing some space from that room, but it would be kind of an awkward L-shape then, and not sure it would be an improvement.
