Need opinion on new layout for apartment
rachel477January 31, 2013
We are buying a 1700 sq ft apartment and want to renovate it. Would you look at the layouts? The rules are that wet areas (bath, kitchen) have to stay over wet areas which limits the options. We want it to be 4 bedroom/3 bath. We have two small kids and might have another.My biggest question is the area after the kitchen. Ok to have the dining room there? We want a big living area for the kids to play in since their bedrooms are pretty small. Also the new layout has the living room taking advantage of the windows facing the park.

Moving the living room to the end is a great idea. Not crazy about the kitchen in the way of main circulation. Also what is that open area with a window by the bathroom being used for ?

I wasn't crazy about the kitchen there either but I'm ok with it now. Its a walk through galley which I've seen before. Unfortunately this was the only layout that gave us a spacious enough kitchen. That other area is really an entrance to the bathroom/laundry but I'd like to create a mini butler's pantry of sorts with 12'' depth shelving.
