Kitchen layout HELP!! :/
I need help with ideas for the layout of this kitchen. The room we are dealing with is aprox 21' x 11' . The 42" high bar on the outside of the kitchen area is not yet there but is in the plan for this layout. This is new construction and I can put things wherever I want but I need to keep the plumbing on the inside wall ( or close to the inside of this layout ) not on the outside wall. For the last six months I was comfortable with the layout that put the range on the inside wall (closest to the entry way) with the sink on the same run. Then after months of looking at cabinet arrangements and settling on this I submitted the list for a quote and no sooner did I do that then all of a sudden it didn't feel right. So now I am in limbo again. The space that I have to work with for this kitchen was actually the space that we lived in all winter long for the last 7 years. Boyfriend has built a beautiful house around this existing cabin, so you can imagine how small the kitchen I am used to was. Stove, sink, refer and counter space on one wall in a 13' run. On one hand it seems logical to have the sink right close to the range with some counter space in between on the other it seems logical to put the range on the other side ( still with reservations about having the stove so far from sink). It is an awkward space and I don't want the seating for the sitting bar to stick out into the hallway or dining area so the cabinets will have to be held in from the short wall about 6-9"... Boyfriend likes the idea of stove on the inside wall, every other person that I have asked says put it on the outside wall. I know he lives here and they don't but I also consider this is coming from people who do a lot of cooking and he not so much. I do most all of the cooking myself and all the cleaning. Range is 48", frz/refer is 42" or 44" with cabinet, sink is XTRA large and needs a 48" w x 27" d cabinet and I would like the cabinet fronts to stay in line. Both of us dislike the idea of uneven counter edge. This drawing is not to scale but is a close idea of what I am working with.
