How big is your kitchen as a percentage of your home's square footage?

8 years ago

After your initial feedback, I've been working on a preliminary layout. It has gotten me thinking about how much space a kitchen should occupy. My home is about 1800 sq feet of finished space. The kitchen will end up about 265 sq feet (including eat in area and mudroom/rear entry) or 15% of my home's total square footage.

Is that a big kitchen for the size of my house? Or is it a small one? My home was built in the 20's, which I'm sure influences such things.
