Kitchen, Mudroom/laundry, Walk in pantry layout advice please

4 years ago

Hi wise houzzers,

We are finalizing the layout for our ground floor renovations. The side extension is 2000mm x 6840mm (difference to attached drawing is due to an existing column measuring 620mm wide, it's right next to the multi function room). The layout fits our brief for storage, a separate laundry/mudroom and a study nook.

Having taped up the proposed layout we find:

  • the clearance of 900mm between bench and island to be quite tight for our family of 4. Will shifting the island bench towards the middle of the room look odd? Am struggling with the kitchen layout in particular if we increased both clearance to 1200mm.

-The island bench is 2x1m which we would prefer to increase to 2.5x1.2m.

  • the corner pantry joining the stove top and other bench (fridge, tower oven side) only has a 350mm opening. I think we can steal some space from the stove top area to create a decent opening for a corner pantry. Not sure what the minimum dimension needs to be for a door to the corner pantry?

The family room is too narrow to fit a galley style kitchen and island hence we have kept the kitchen to the same spot.

Would appreciate any suggestions you have and potentially other things we should consider? Many thanks in advance!
