Finalizing Kitchen Design and Layout - would love input!

12 years ago

I've been lurking these threads for months but this is my first post. Hello hello! We've finally selected a contractor and are in the process of finalizing the kitchen design. I'm seeking any input or suggestions that others with experience in kitchen design/layout may have - we've gone over this many times and we aren't coming up with any other design concepts that might enhance the functionality of the kitchen.

To the right of the sink is an eat-in area with a bench and storage under the bench. We will have a table built for that area.

The back area is a bar area, and the cabinet to the left of the arch will house our TV/cable box. To the left of that is obviously the pantry.

We've selected all KitchenAid appliances - the Architect series (36 in range, counterdepth fridge and DW) but have yet to decide on a hood. We are going with white painted shaker style custom cabinets and espresso colored cabinets on the back "bar" area.

Right now the back right wall is empty because we're hoping to hang artwork from a local artist, but I'm not convinced it looks right. Does it look asymmetrical to not have a cabinet there?

Another issue is that we have two very young children (a toddler and a newborn) so we need the kitchen to store two highchairs. We don't have a ton of extra space in the kitchen since we're putting an eat-in space in the corner under the two windows.

Anyway, here are the renderings - I would be so grateful for thoughts/comments/suggestions. Thanks - this forum has been so instrumental in helping us gather ideas about this remodel!
