Off the bottom is a sunken family room, to the right along the wall is a living room, and to the right of the table is the entry way / stairs to the 2nd floor.

The kitchen, living room, and entry area have a vaulted ceiling... the wall with the fridge is an 8ft wall with a 3ft gap above, it also gets a fair amount of light over the top from a large window in the living room

Not sure how to answer that question, so here is a rough layout i drew up quick.

That sounds about right, its longer than the kitchen but the wall follows the ridge of the vault, so its about the same width

Re: Stainless Farmhouse sink with Black Stainless appliances?


How much space is there from the right edge of the table to the closest edge of the fridge?

44 inches
Each of the grid squares is a square foot.

Re: Stainless Farmhouse sink with Black Stainless appliances?


The island works the way it is, or you can extend it further by making it into an 'L' (in either direction) or an upside-down 'T' (the vertical part inside the horseshoe and the horizontal part outside), and it can double as your table (with high stools for chairs)... unless it's true that it needs to be 42" away and 36" is going to disturb you.

I'm not clear where you say: "It's got 36 inches of clearance the side of the oven and dishwasher, 44 on the side of the fridge." This doesn't seem to fit the square diagram where one square is 12" since there are three on each side -but I believe you. In any case, look at your diagram again. See how it's almost symmetrical? Ideally, if a space is going to be assymetrical (which yours is), it will be obviously assymetrical. It may not be right to try and change this if it's going to mess your workspace. IE: with 42" as the recommended workspace, you're shy of that by six inches. If that doesn't bother you by the fridge, moving the island six inches would make the space more symmetrical. Then, moving the table so it's perpendicular to the island will complete the symmetry. There's no wrong way to do this; assymetrical works, too.

Simple, metal, silver vases with flowers on your sill and countertops will tie your silver apron to the rest of the room.

The area at the bottom right is open space and I don't know if there's a wall there or not, but from the diagram's perspective, that space needs something there. From a realistic perspective, that may not be the case -hard to say.

I never measured the space between my fridge and my wall until now. I've got 33" and it's fine.

Re: Stainless Farmhouse sink with Black Stainless appliances?


So i just threw this together as a quick test, it feels much roomier because i moved the two large vertical cabinets (the fridge and the ovens) away from the front of the room.... I know some people say don't put your ovens next to the fridge, I just did a search and GE says its not an issue.

I could probably change the island size a little bit with this layout

To answer your question about the right of the table, it is a high traffic area.... from the main entrance of the house, the living room, the family room, the stairs, and the kitchen.... so you definitely wouldn't want to put furniture there.

Re: Stainless Farmhouse sink with Black Stainless appliances?


The trick is to make the best use of the space. Here's an exercise, if you want to play along... Go to your program and erase everything. Make your kitchen completely empty. Then one by one, slowly add the items that you cannot do without. Not the things you want; the things you need. Put them exactly where they would be if you were in there, cooking. What's the most convenient place for each of them? When you've got what you need in the perfect spot, start adding what you want. Work the core first. You don't need the island because you have the same amount of space (and more) on the left side. You don't need the little square piece on the right side now.

See what happens.
