So, I know I’ve been MIA for awhile – I’ve missed you guys!
I’m popping in today because I have a semi-urgent question to ask you. Would you mind giving me your two cents and weighing in on a kitchen design?
What I need help with is the kitchen in our 10th flip (I know, I still owe you final pics of the 8th and I haven’t shown you any of the 9th, much less our two rental properties . . . ugh!). Forgive me while I jump ahead a bit. :)
We’re moving a ton of things around (deleting a powder room and adding a full bath, adding a laundry room, etc.) and the space we’re left with is a little bit of a head-scratcher.
Here’s a mock-up of the raw space (update – see the end of the post for a whole-home floor plan):
It’s 21 1/2 feet long by 9 feet wide with a door and windows in some awkward places. For now we’re ignoring the windows and we’ll re-frame as necessary, but I’d rather not move the door.
And here’s my best shot so far at laying out the kitchen:
Do you think this is the best we can do, or do you have some suggestions? I’d love to hear what you think?
P.S. There isn’t room for an island. :(
UPDATE: Here’s a really terrible, not-drawn-to-scale rendering of the home’s “new” floor plan, which I thought might be helpful. I didn’t put in doorways, etc. because of the time crunch, but if you have a question about them just let me know!
