What are the dimensions of your current kitchen. And does it feel to small to you?

That diagram is a bit mathsy so for those of us who prefer English....

Each leg of the kitchen work triangle must be 4 feet (1.2m) or more and not more than 9 feet (2.75m).
If you add up the legs of the kitchen triangle this should not be more than 26 feet (7.9m).

You need at least 10 x 10ft (3 x 3m) to consider a G shaped kitchen and the design is easily expanded into a larger room, provided that the kitchen triangle is kept to a manageable size.

Hope this can help you with kitchen planning. I can see your concern with moving the front door i think there is only a couple solutions to keeping it where it is. i will post it when i can but i dont really like it as well. I also dont know what the front of your house looks like so i was not really able to tell if it would look ok to move it or if you would have to massively rework the front of your house.

I dont really have time to do a detailed draw out but the basic idea would be giving up the current master bath for kitchen area and then using the other bedroom to expand your master suite.

Adding the 3 feet the kitchen is now larger than the original. You did a great job getting the ball rolling. Just what I needed!
I have looked and looked and never saw that Idea
Thanks again
I am in Ga. Are you anywhere near?

Re: I have a home that was built in the 70s and would like to do a complete remodel.


It is official now! The wife has looked for a couple of days and has given the plan her approval. Thanks to everyone . Now the fun begins, Time to start laying out kitchens and bathrooms. I have Punch Home designer but it is a little difficult to navigate. Had it for 7 years plus and wondering if there is something better on line out there.
This remodel won't be too difficult in the electrical and plumbing will be easy as the wire runs are pulled.Just extensions for the added walls. A new run for the range. Plenty of room under the floor to run new PVC plumbing.
Any ideas to how to arrange bathrooms and kitchens are welcome.We want to change this 40 year old home into a modern and friendly design.
Things like a big shower in the master bath and a bar vs island in kitchen.
Thanks to everyone.
David

once you get your floor plan kinda finalized post an update where we can see the measurements. then if something looks to tight or small we can let you know.

Wow you got some really great suggestions for your remodel from this thread. It is making me wish I would have discovered this forum before we remodelled our house 5 years ago. Although I am happy with how it turned out either way. Good luck with the whole process. I remember it being extremely tiring but ultimately very rewarding. We did get very closely involved too, even stayed in an RV we rented from https://www.campanda.com/ for a while so we could stay on site at all times even when we had to move out for a short period of time. Very worth it in the long run. Nothing like that first evening after the remodel is complete, sitting in the living room and just staring at the finished product in amazement. I hope you will find it just as fulfilling Good luck with everything!
