My kitchen is smaller. I have 10 1/2' window wall the other 2 are only 7 1/2'. I do a lot of cooking in my horrible kitchen and would really love to try to maximize the counter space. My contractor/designer has my kitchen lay out pretty much like yours. The working triangle. But that gives me corners that are not functional and chopped up counter space. What do you think if I put the sink in the corner near the stove, dishwasher on the window wall next to sink. Then, I would have all uninterrupted counter space until the end where the fridge would be. What do you think of that idea? Is this not a good idea? Thank you.

annam2- My first priorities in kitchen design go this way: 4'-9' between the center of the cooking surface, sink and fridge (work triangle), then I focus on landing space on both sides of each or more substantial on at least one side, and finally walkway/standing space around each of these zones. I would be mostly concerned about making sure there is at least 24" of countertop frontage space in this case between the cooking surface and the sink. Feeling crowded between those two highly used items would almost never feel comfortable. I might be tempted to explore the idea of not having cabinets on the window wall- it would give a little more breathing room to the left of the range, and place the sink and dishwasher at the other end of the long counter space from the fridge. Sure you would loose a little bit of storage space, but might be able to make that up with 15" deep wall cabinets and a few other tricks...hope this helps.

Between about $20-50 per square foot. Edging of course will add more also.

What kind of wood counter is most durable and what do you recommend for treating? I LOVE the wood, but am worried that my kids will do something to wreck it ...

Jennifer- we sure did. We used maple and mitered the corners.

The range was a genuine retro 1920s era range the client found on Ebay that a homeowner had sitting out by a barn in the Midwest. Can't remember if the seller had it cleaned up and refurbished or my client...

Love, love, love! - This remodel is delicious! I have a long narrow kitchen with a lot of foot paths and was looking for something that the design matches mine. This is pretty close, and gave me some ideas to do upgrades! I have no question. Just saying I love it!

Light over window - How wide is the window and what size light fixture did you use. Looks like a schoolhouse light.

It is a schoolhouse light. I think it was about 5-6" diameter and about 8-9" tall. The window I think was about 32".

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Janell Beals - House of Fifty added this to The Return of the High-Back Farmhouse Sink
When the cottage style is in full swing, it’d be a shame to pass up the opportunity to bring in a high-back farmhouse sink. Can you imagine this kitchen with an undermount stainless steel number?

I would prefer a vintage look sink like this one!
