Worst kitchen layout ever!!!

dsepciAugust 13, 2014
I have a 12x12 kitchen with an attached dinette that's approximately 5x8.5. As you can see by the pictures, I have no Sid walls....back wall is sliding glass door, to the right is small pantry and garage door, to the left it opens immediately to the family room and towards the front is a dining room/playroom. To make matters worse, a small curved peninsula breaks up the whole kitchen. My husband says we have $10,000 (?!) to work with! I need all the help and advice I can get!!! Am looking for better function, more room and just a more open layout. Help!!!

That curved peninsula drives me nuts, lol! It literally cuts the kitchen in half.

Ii wish that was a mushroom, by it's a pantry. Great idea about moving the fridge over there, maybe we can put it where the other door is (to our garage)! Then build a mudroom/pantry from the garage and have the entry door where the pantry door is???

You will have to redo flooring, counters, electrical and pluming to make the changes hou desire. 10K isn't going to cut it. Save your money until you have 20K more to go with it, and then you'll have sufficnt budget to tackle the problem of remaking the island and moving things around. Add another 20K to it if you're ready for all new cabinets by then.
