Kitchen Plans

120513d1In the last post I showed you the granite that I was considering for the counter tops in the kitchen. Here are the 3D plans for the kitchen showing the layout.  The cupboard doors and some of the features will look a little different so it’s really just for the purposes of understanding where everything will go. There is a double sink by the window and the dishwasher will go in the unit to its right. The doorway pictured is the one that leads through into the breakfast room. In the corner to the left by the window will go the kettle, toaster, coffee machine etc., or possibly this will be the main preparation area – I will have to see how it feels when I get in there.

There will be six large drawers for utensils, pots and pans etc. The pairs of wall mounted cupboards on either side of the range will actually be part-glazed. Instead of the stainless steel chimney extractor there will be an integrated extractor set into a mantel-type set up.

  1. I am sure you have done it, but you mentioned what might sit where on benches. Make sure you have adequate power points so you can be completely flexible about what sits where.

  2. You’re right Andrew. Five double sockets and two singles – five sockets in total in the left corner, four in the right corner and three above the dishwasher.
