Need help with awkward 90s kitchen with corner pantry layout

2 months ago

Hi there,

Husband and I are brainstorming on ways we can remodel this outdated 90s kitchen that has a corner pantry and awkward doorway. We'd like to remove the awkward island cooktop altogether and would ideally like a larger fridge than the original area allots.

A few ideas we've floated around:

- Removing island

- Adding peninsula to sink side of kitchen

- Purchasing range, place next to sink side – we are afraid it might make that side of the kitchen too busy

- Placing wall oven next pantry in the original fridge spot – but where would cooktop go? Possibly

- Knocking down the upper cabinets next to pantry, adjacent to family room and placing fridge there

- Leveling/flatten countertop adjacent to family room

We plan on refacing cabinets and getting new countertops altogether.

For reference, the entire kitchen + dining measures 21x12.7ft. We plan on utilizing the nook area (adding in tables + chairs) as our informal dining room. Thank you!
