Unlock the entire Houzz
we must choose a fireplace. Like the fire orb. don't like its lack of technical efficiency. we will choose a non-clunky wood burning stove. where will it go? too close to island and food prep area gives ventilation problems.. too close to N/W or S/W corners eliminates our only oppotunity to utilize a bit of non-glass area to hang pictures or shelves. Put it in the middle of the floor, and we lock ourself in to a no dance space!
against window. this picture reflects the approximate amount of space we have to work with along our north facing windows if we consider that the wall in this picture demarcates the westernmost edge of the island as it is drawn in on the architect*s drawings. the view is also a bit similar. here we could take the woodburning stove and place it somewhere from the middle point of the room towards the northwest walls. But how far out from the window? to close and we loose the chance to walk back and forth there or place something there like meditation pillows. But to far out in the room constricts the placement of sofas, chairs or seating arrangements.
