Kitchen layout - Where do I put the fridge!?

islamackJune 15, 2013
As you can see my kitchen is in desperate need of updating. Yes, that is a portable dishwasher between the fridge and stove! I have lived with this for a few years now and can't stand it any longer! In having done so though I am aware of what I want in a functional space, but balancing that with good design may be a challenge. My problem is I can't decide whether to put the fridge to the left of the sink (dishwasher will be on right) or at the far right of the range wall (at he end of a longer counter run). Of those two spots whichever does not have the fridge will have a pantry. What I have decided is the layout will remain largely the same (budget), and it will still be an eat in kitchen with the dining table where it is now. Functionally, having the fridge at the end of a counter run on the range wall is brilliant in that I do 90% of my cooking out of the fridge and will not have an island. However, having a fridge directly behind the eating area doesn't seem esthetically pleasing, where a pantry could be more so. I should also note traffic to our much used family room travels right through the middle of the space and the window will be relocated. So, please post your ideas and comments!!! Thank you!!!

Hi, I think you will find inspiration if you do a detailed Houzz photo search. I am not able to give color or specific design opinions without seeing the space.
