He said he has 11’’ so you can actually put in a 10’’ base cabinet with a filler strip and still use a blind corner base cabinet going parallel with the sink wall.
My blind corner cabinet is not a 90 degree corner it is straight.

Having trouble w/ Kitchen layout


Rditz:

So it sounds like you think there is enough room to work with which is encouraging. My main concern over there is accessing the items stored in the circle with the X in it. right now there is no door there, and only a door where I put the <.

If I put drawers between the current counter and the stove then wouldn't that leave it semi-hard to access that space do you think?

Is there 2-piece door that would attach by the stove and "tuck" into the corner that I could fit there with the 11" Maybe?

yes, the corner cabinet gets a 2 piece hinged door that will open up quite a bit... also for storage and access, buy a "lazy-susan" kit for the corner cabinet, it will give you the best usage for that cabinet.

i did like the picture of the kitchen with the stove in the corner, but I think that you are already limited on your available space and that design would cramp your kitchen further.

Scale has gone to hell here, but you get the point. This is what we are talking about right?

So the 11" between the stove and the current counter should be enough to do this?

That takes care of my biggest worry

you got it pete... of course, you will have to relocate your stove plug and other electrical services, but you are tearing walls apart anyways...

good luck

I don't understand. I was planning on leaving the stove where it is and having the new counter wrap around to meet it??

Relocating the plug will not be a huge deal, the kitchen is getting a re-wire anyway. I'm having a 200 amp panel installed before I start. The circuits are all jacked up right now.

my suggestion is to remove the pantry behind the stove to give you additional cabinet space. therefore relocation of the plug would be required

Tearing out the pantry would involve tearing out a coat closet in the living room as well. It would add Time, materials and $ to the project along with take away our coat closet so I'd like to keep that as-is. In addition to that, the current pantry is actually surprisingly roomy and I don't think I could do better by re-building it on the other side of the kitchen.

Hopefully this helps:

As long as you guys still agree that the 11" gap is enough to do a double hinged door the I'm happy

go to home depot and look at their kitchen cabinets. they will probably have a sheet hanging around that is a planning sheet. They will also have racks of cabinets (clearly marked with the dimensions on them). check out the corner base cabinets (i believe they are 36"x36") and are made specifically to into a corner like we been discussing. they will also have scores of doors. look for a door for that cabinet. it is a double door with a piano hinge joining the doors together in the middle.

You should also be able to get a 34 x 34 you can also go to home depot as suggested but before you do take measurements of your existing kitchen with all door and window locations and appliance sizes and go to their kitchen department and they will draw up a plan that works best for your situation for free and then you will actually know what works.

You could also check Ikea's catalog online.

Having trouble w/ Kitchen layout


Going to IKEA this weekend since we are almost out of rye bread. Can't go to IKEA without taking a stroll around, so I'll probably get a quote on cabinets while we're there.

I think we'll just get a quote from the local Lowe's / HD as well - if the prices come up the same I'd rather buy them assembled from HD/Lowe's since it takes time out of the equation. If IKEA comes up cheaper I don't mind assembling - I can assemble their stuff with my eyes closed now, we just put IKEA cabinets in my parents condo this weekend.

We're looking for a plain white "Cape Cod style" cabinets so they should not be hard to find.

Side question: If we are doing pergo floors in the kitchen would you just put the cabinets on plywood equal in thickness to the pergo floor and then run the pergo right up to the toekick? Doing pergo all over and putting cabinets on top seems like a bad idea due to the "flex".
