Help with redesigning a kitchen
Jennifer Hogan
March 26, 2014
I love my current kichen, but I am moving to a new home and have to "Fix" the kitchen. The new home has good qualtiy cabinets and is pretty and more expensive finishings than my current kitchen.

What I love most about my current kitchen is the 8x4 peninsula that serves as our kitchen table. It is wonderful for baking with the grandkids. I am on one side rolling cookie dough while they are on the other side sprinking and decorating and filling trays.

I want a larger flat surface area than is in this new kitchen. It seems that any table that would fit in the dining area of the kitchen would have to be small.

Thinking about taking out the current breakfast bar and adding a double island or something, just don't know what to do. . . I am worried that it will look to long and narrow if I am not careful with the design. Kitchen is 12x18 and living room is 13 x 26.

I agree with that, but what else needs fixed?

Swap the fridge with the cabinets next to it- so fridge goes in corner no longer next to cooker and forget the other return - and have the big island built !

Remove the bar and reconfigure that corner into the longer, deeper peninsula you want. Since there's no faucet near the current bar area you don't need what appears to be a backsplash.
