I cannot design your kitchen and living room layout for you. If you want to present a floor plan showing how the kitchen will be arranged, then perhaps you could get comments on how the living room adjacent to it should be layed out. You may also get comments from kitchen designers on an existing layout, but you're not likely to get many responses without any layout at all. We are not a free architectural service. We are professional designers and other interested parties who will give you opinions on existing spaces.

Thanks for your response Carolyn. Of course, you are right. There needs to be more i just thought I'd through it out there while I'm looking. I'm new to this site which is incredible for sure. I have been on for weeks hours at a time to get ideas. Is there somewhere on this site for me to put those dimensions in to see layouts. I guess I'm asking for too much lol. I will def take pics tomorrow of the room. I have also been working on a floor plan to scale with the cabinets but with the room as big as it is now I want to get an island in there maybe 9 feet long inside my hopefully soon to be new kitchen.

I suggest you find an architect or architectural designer in your area who will creat a floorplan for you. A kitchen designer could be even better! Try visiting a kitchen showroom, plans in hand.

Thank you I will do so. It's been quite a dilemma as after I saw the walls gutted I had my contractor move the wall back to make the kitchen wider then saw pics of open rooms and then said to him today to now take that load bearing wall down that he just built and open up the room so an architect will be doming over next week. All just snowballed but I'm sort of glad it did. I always wanted it open .. its just a very big undertaking is all. I did go to Lowes and gave them my specific dimensions. They were very helpful and made a to scale layout that is quite nice.

I went to the site and tried to register but it asked for my organization. A little confusing so I just left a message and hopefully will speak with someone when they reopen on Tuesday.

You might go to the search bar above to where it says " find local pros". Perhaps in that space you would find some kitchen designers in your area without waiting for a call that may never come.
