Please help with my kitchen layout design!!!

gidgetgirlyDecember 11, 2012

Hello! Can anyone help me with my kitchen layout design? Here is my existing kitchen:

Here is the refrigerator wall idea I like. I'd put solid cabinetry to the counter (right of the fridge) instead of the built in appliance shown in the photo:

The door to the left of my hallway is a closet pantry. I'd keep this as a pantry, but make it into a butler's style. It would be recessed into the pantry niche up to the ceiling. I'd love for it to look just like this photo, but solid top doors instead of glass, to hide the food etc. It's the butler's cabinet to the left in this photo:

I'd like my range hood to look like this:

And here is my very crudely drawn example :)

Cabinetry done in white, carerra marble counters, L shaped island with dark wood top. The floors will be dark hardwood. New paint color on walls.

What do you think? Does anyone have any better ideas? Range must stay in that location, but fridge, pantry & coat closet (far right on range wall where the separate door is) can be interchanged.

Thank you so much and I apologize for taking up so much space!

I forgot to add, the new range going into the space is a 36" Bertazzoni :)

Can you do a layout/floorplan on graph paper, so it's to scale? Your drawing is part layout and part elevation, and without dimensions, and it's hard to keep track of what you want to do to your space, as you show the photos. What you've shown is all potentially helpful, but a proposed layout would bring it all together to make things clearer, and then we can see what your questions and challenges are.
