layout help for kitchen in new location in house

4 years ago

I am moving kitchen from front of house to
back to tie the kitchen in to backyard, 3 season porch, and public areas of the
house. I'd like some help with the kitchen layout as I don't love the
layout proposed by house designer.

I am single and live alone so most of the time
the kitchen will be used by just me for quick meals but I like to entertain
informally and when I entertain some friends and family help out in the kitchen
and hang out. I have a separate dining room and like that.

I don't need a baking, coffee, or snack center
but I do want a pantry cabinet or closet.

I'd love to get a small island or table in the
kitchen for seating for 2.

I want mostly drawers for base cabinets

Things I don't want

  • main sink in island - always seems messy to me


  • 30” Range with single oven
  • I rarely use a microwave but probably would have a
    small one that could be tucked away
  • standard DW
  • 36" wide refrigerator - I'd prefer standard depth
    but can be flexible here based on layout. The fridge could be recessed into the mudroom above the bathroom
  • Ventilation Hood - flexible would prefer hood to

Windows and Doors

  • Doorways, except entrance from foyer, can move but
    windows on back wall will stay as is.
