Re: Kitchen Remodeling Questions

I am not a fan of wood in kitchens /bathrooms. Looks nice though

I clean as I prep, so when the cooking starts there's practically nothing left to clean or put away. Different strokes.
I can relate to your wife.

Re: Kitchen Remodeling Questions

I played around with some of your ideas and drew stuff up in 2020 Design (still figuring the software out so excuse the sloppy layouts). I will install wall cabinets to the ceiling in all layouts. The microwave and electrical oven will be installed in the wall cabinetry. The cooktop will be gas. Iím going to extend the countertop 12Ē toward the windows to create stool seating in both layouts.

L-shaped Kitchen with Island
Iíve laid out Tomís idea of the L-shaped kitchen plus an island. Im going to keep all the cooktop and sink on the walls. I really like this layout because:

1. No messy cooktop or dirty dishes on the island
2. No need to move sink plumbing
3. Two entrances to the kitchen

Only downsides are the cook canít face the living space. Not sure if thatís a big deal. Iím renting the condo out so I donít really know how real ďpeople" operate. Also the 12Ē cabinet to the left of the sink seems stubby and abruptly ended. Anyway to fix that?

Peninsula with Cooktop
The pros to this layout are:
1. Cook can face the living space
2. More usable counter space near the sink and the cooktop.
3. Defined ending of kitchen.

Comments / criticism are welcome and greatly appreciated.

Thanks for all the help.
