This plan shows how our kitchen was configured before we dismantled it here and here. Things to note: no dishwasher, a lot of unused space, very little upper cabinet storage, and very little counter space. And as I have mentioned, what was there was…special.
A number of years ago, when we remodeled the Bungalow’s bathroom, I drew up this plan for a kitchen remodel as well.
The idea behind our new kitchen is really all due to Brooke’s suggestion that we take out a wall.
By removing the wall between the dining room and the kitchen we can accomplish several goals. One: more light and an open feeling. Two: better flow, this allows us to still have three doors but the ones on the south wall, lined up, will give a better use of space and direction. Three: better use of space providing more counters and cupboards.
Here is the plan as of today.
Of course there are still changes in the works and we need to block everything out in real life, but that is a good start for a goal.
