Review my Layout
So last December we bought our first home - a 1959 mid-century ranch. 3/1.5 at 1000 sq ft. Keep in mind that it's on concrete slab and it's an Eichler-style roof - exposed beam ceiling with a tar & gravel roof directly on top (no attic space).
The kitchen is a late 80's/early 90's honey oak nightmare. The cabinets and flooring are badly water damaged from the previous homeowners and the layout is absolutely horrible (you can't unload the dishwasher directly into the cabinets), so we're gonna gut the kitchen to the studs/subfloor and put in an IKEA kitchen .
There's a wall dividing the kitchen and the living room which we want to tear down and create a peninsula so it's open concept. Even though it's a small space, the fun part is we can easily move the plumbing, gas lines, and electrical - so let your imagination go wild!
To keep the MCM look, we've chosen Adel Medium Brown cabs, cork flooring, light blue glass subway tile backsplash, and white caesarstone counters. I want a pantry, a microwave drawer and an overhang on the back side of the peninsula for seating.
