Figuring out the kitchen layout

 For months we have been working with our architect on the kitchen project, and our start date is getting near.  We are going to start the last week of March so final plans are being made.

Today I taped up the areas where things will be because I wanted to have a bit of a visual on how the new layout will look.  It was fun, and now I have a better idea of where things will be.

Sink area with island and bar area. The window along the back wall will be staying - just being raised and reframed. The sink will be under the middle window - dishwasher to the left. Bar is there to the right - it will hold 4 chairs. And the square at the bottom of this picture is the other half of the island.

Edge of pantry and fridge and start of island. So on our current island the tape represents the end of our pantry and the beginning of the fridge. And then there is a 3 1/2 foot gap and that starts the island. The wall where the oven (in the picture) is will be GONE. Kitchen will extend into the next room

Edge of the mudroom and start of the pantry. Wall there where the shoes are be gone. To the left is a closet right now that will be turned into open lockers for coats and shoes. There will be a doorway into the mudroom, and then a doorway intothe pantry.

We are building in an area for bookcase in front of the pantry. We are putting that in ourselves (we are taking all the millwork on after the project is over so that I can see the spaces and design after the kitchen and pantry are complete) We have a large fireplace, so our architect wanted to make sure she drew it into the design so that it was positioned correctly. We are getting all new floors to match the upstairs as well.

Island, back wall of cabinets and sink and bar sink. All these walls gone
