Layout Help for Bungalow Kitchen

posted by: cstr on 10.12.2012 at 04:51 pm in Kitchens Forum

I am updating my kitchen / dining room in my 1925 bungalow. The layout is a bit tricky as the kitchen has several openings, doorways, a sloped ceiling in one part, and a bulkhead for ductwork. Currently, the kitchen is walled off between the kitchen and dining room. I would like to knock down that wall to let more light into the kitchen. There is a built-in corner cabinet and small pantry (with plumbing inside) in the bottom left corning of the kitchen where a non-moveable wall is shown.

This is the current layout. Notice the wall separating the kitchen and dining room:

I would like to move the range to the exterior wall, so that I can install a decent venting hood. I cook a lot and the current recirculating fan just doesn't cut it. I can't extend a vent currently because of the sloped ceiling next to the stove (stairs to the 2nd floor).

This is a layout I came up with while playing around with the ikea planner:

I swapped the fridge and range and moved the sink and dishwasher to a penninsula. I added a small prep sink near the range. Thoughts? Are there any other layouts that would work here? I am a bit stumped!

Thanks to everyone who posts on this site! The advice here is so helpful!
