Kitchen Layout - Comments Please!

12 years ago

IÂve seen so many insightful comments on kitchen layouts, I thought I would post mine and ask for opinions! Our kitchen has a sun room currently separated with a sliding glass door. We are insulating the sun room and adding a small gas fireplace and will move our kitchen table out there to allow for more space in the kitchen.

Our main goals are to have a better view backyard which we love, have more counter space, have a 5-burner cook top and a double oven. We have a trash compactor now and will get another one. IÂm hoping to get the Franke Orca sink and re-use our Grohe faucet. IÂd like a prep sink but havenÂt been able to find the space. I wouldnÂt mind not having the microwave drawer, but havenÂt found another space for the microwave. WeÂre planning on getting cherry cabinets and a light colored granite. I know our island is unusual  is it too much? Please comment.

The appliances we are planning to get (except the hood may change)

The layout of the kitchen alone:


I have some perspectives which may help:



Another option is a chimney hood and larger window  have to make sure I have enough cabinet space for thisÂ



I hope this isnÂt too long  we would really appreciate hearing your thoughts.
