Kitchen question - This is my favourite houzz picture. Have just shared it with my architect as it fits perfectly with the open plan living room we are working on. Do you know how much space there is between the main kitchen countertop and the island? Thank you!

Did you install the cooktop in front of a window? - I am considering designing my kitchen without any upper cabinets so that I can maximize the amount of windows and natural light. Did you have to make any special accommodations to install the cooktop in front of a window (i.e. tempered glass, non-combustible trim and/or backsplash)? Also, what did you use for a hood?

Tommy Everson

That is what I guessed, thanks for confirming. Did you have to temper the window glass? Also, how did you address glassware storage since there weren't any upper cabinets? I am assuming that the open shelves in the corner weren't ample enough to hold all of the kitchen's glasses and dishes.

We did not temper the glass on the window. The glasses were kept in the open shelves in the photo. The dishes were below in the island. There were also full height cabinets on the wall opposite the open shelves.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rock Paper Hammer added this to Create a Master Plan for a Cohesive Home
Create a master plan. If you're working with a professional, you'll want a master plan drawn out for your project. A master plan is typically a drawing that takes a comprehensive look at a large area, focusing on the relationships between individual parts rather than the details. I usually use the term "master plan" when referring to an entire house or site, rather than a single space. A master plan is particularly helpful if you plan to move things around and make changes to your floor plan, rather than basic cosmetic upgrades to finishes and fixtures. It can help you keep the big picture in mind, so you create a house that feels cohesive and complete.
Vanessa Brunner added this to 4 Key Space-Planning Considerations
4. Make your home flow. Your new room needs to have a space plan that flows not only within itself, but also with the other rooms in your house. "Organizational flow helps you find the way in your house," says Hebson. Flow from one space to another takes function into account (for instance, keeping your kitchen close to the dining room), but also considers materials and color. A continuity of materials and color from room to room — furniture, flooring, millwork, baseboards and interior doors — will allow your home to flow visually, too.More: Mastering the Open Floor PlanHow to Read a Floor Plan
