Our kitchen renovation has once again come to a standstill. Many factors are at play, including total lack of oomph or ambition to do anything beyond keeping our house fairly clean, but we’re hoping to resolve that soon so we need to make some decisions.
This is the current state of our kitchen (squint and you’ll get the right idea of the space without getting caught up in my crappy photo stitching):
Right now the floor plan is like this, owing to a brilliant idea I had to make it more of a galley instead of a single counter line:
However, this requires that we a) deal with the open hole where there used to be an old, narrow fridge, b) we build two cabinets (the ones on either side of the stove), c) match counter tops on both sides of the kitchen. It also potentially blocks the view from the dining room through to the back door which might make the kitchen seem smaller… maybe?
I had this idea for the hole, which would also require building:
My updated brilliant master plan is to go back to the single line of cabinets both so you can see through to the back door (which would ideally be switched out to a glass door) and also to minimize the building work necessary..
Joey thinks this will ruin everything and we’ve agreed to get more input before I bring the plumber back to move the gas line for the stove… again.
Please weigh in?
