Houzz is the new way to design your home.
February 5, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I just made an offer on a house I really want. The only problem is the kitchen. I think the footprint is OK, appliances nice, but the layout is not good. Both the refrigerator and the stove are crammed too close to the corners. There is a high ceiling but the cabinets are small and there isn't much storage, no pantry cabinet. The peninsula is the only real counter space. On the right wall, by the refrig, there is room to add more where the plant is in the photo. On the other side of the refrig is a very narrow slice of cabinet and counter, about 24 inches wide. I want to keep the slider where it is. The kitchen opens to the dining area and living room. I have a small budget, so would like to use existing cabinets but am OK with painting them to match new additional ones. I already own a nice freestanding island I could include. The space is 10 x 12.9. The kitchen does not look good from the rest of the house either. Is there any hope for this kitchen?
