    [MOVED] Please help design my Kitchen 5th Mar 18 at 6:57 PM
    MOVED TO: forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showpost.php?p=73998153

    We have just completed a, 3x5.5 meter, Orangery Extension (with roof lantern) from our Kitchen/Dining space and are really struggling on what to do with the combined spaces. See link for Pictures and Layout drawings, current layout and empty rooms. sizes are in mm.

    see link to Layout drawings: goo.gl/hrj98m

    Our requirements/wishlist for the rooms are:

    Appliances
    . 2x Fridge & Freezer Integrated units
    . Washing Machine
    . Dishwasher
    . Tumble Dryer
    . Range Cooker 90cm

    Furniture
    . Dining Table (4-6 seater)
    . Seating for 4+ people

    Additional (would love but could be dropped if does fit)
    . Breakfast Bar & Island
    . Tall Lader Unit
    . Desk/work area

    any help would be great, we are really struggling for inspiration and ideas.

    Thanks

    Some of the layout also depends on where the services are... gas, Water, drainage, etc., unless you want to go to the extra expense of moving those.


    Do you want to move the kitchen to the extension, or keep it where it is?

    If keeping it, be sure to keep the main kitchen 'triangle' away from the route through the kitchen to the extension.

    There's a lovely triangle called Bermuda you could disappear into!


    On the other hand, it would make a nice pattern if inlaid into the floor.

    Will they have the timber and paint there?
