Need high level kitchen addition layout help

11 years ago

This is my first post so hopefully I'll provide all the right info. I'm debating doing an addition on my house (add a master suite above the garage, expand the garage 10' to the back so that I can add a mud room between the garage and kitchen). There were just two of us when we bought and now we've got four kids between 7 to 13. To bring the door from the mud room into the kitchen, I need to redesign the kitchen. This has me thinking of bumping out the kitchen 10' to make a big kitchen where lots of kids can hang out. I'd really like a big island (maybe L shaped) down the middle but I'm having a hard time figuring out if it will fit. Here is my before and the outline of the after. I can move just about anything and change size of windows, etc (except for small square in corner by dining room since that's my HVAC air return). I have 8' ceilings and currently have a 60" round table in my breakfast area. I don't want a cook top in the island, maybe just a prep sink. Any thoughts?
