Kitchen Help Please!

So you may remember, last week I posted some ideas for a galley kitchen. A reader wrote to me for some help with a small kitchen renovation. Originally they wanted to keep with the wall structure already in place BUT she wrote back and they are thinking of taking out a wall that holds the opening to the dining/living room area. I immediately thought of this layout......


What I think is great about these two kitchens above is the practical layout for a smaller kitchen....

and these views of the kitchen from the dining/living room are magnificent!

The island with the kitchen sink and dishwasher is a really good design. It keeps the one and only wall open to hold the range and refrigerator. There is also extra storage, seating and counter top space in the island, love that!

Here are some other samples with the same layout below!

  1. I really like the idea of the kitchen sink in the island, especially if you can have a big enough island. That would leave so much more space for cabinets.
