Small kitchen floorplan needs help
December 20, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I have a tiny kitchen (in fact, my fridge door has to be opened in order to fully open my oven door), and we are looking to rennovate. I would like to hear your suggestions to maximize the space, storage, and how to create a better flow. Right now, only one person can fit in the kitchen and accomplish anything. We discussed demo-ing the wall between the living room, moving the fridge beside the stove (the stove would have to move over a bit) and putting the dishwasher on the right hand side of the sink (eliminating the current island). An island that would double as a kitchen table would go where the pantry is now, and maybe some more cabinets on the wall of the kitchen table. (which would also build a small hallway in front of our master bedroom). I absolutely HATE how our bedroom has no privacy from the kitchen or living room, and would like to do something about that as well. (However, that wall is the only way to access the bedroom). We could possibly expand the kitchen out to the covered patio, but we cannot move any drain pipes (sink would have to remain in the same spot). I greatly appreciate any advice and input you have!
