We’re finalising our layout for kitchen/living/dining renovation. We are working within exisiting footprint of our 70s house by removing walls (an extension out of our budget!).
We currently have a small kitchen, room for a 6 seater dining table and couches seating 4 people. We are a family of 5 - with 3 teenage boys.
One new layout allows us a decent sized kitchen with kitchen island bench (2m) but the space is very tight - leaving room for a 6 seater dining table and 3-4 seater couch.
One layout is a huge kitchen without an island and with a 10-12 seater table in the middle of the kitchen (think farmhouse kitchen) and 6-7 seater couch. I am leaning towards this design.
Our dilemma - if we ever sell, do people absolutely want a kitchen island these days?
Our dilemma is….
Hi Melinda, having a floor plan of the space here would help in you being provided the best answer.
Hope this helps, Malcolm.
Personally love an island. But post your plans. It needs to work in your space.
Do you value kitchen island seating?
Do kitchens have to have pendant lights?
Placement of black and white in kitchen
kitchen configuration design.
Thank you Malcolm and Kate for your reply. Both options being drawn up, so will post very soon.
You have 5 people in your home already. With a 6 seater dining suite that means you can only comfortably invite one friend!It depends on your own household lifestyle, but a large 10-12 dining suite space would be my choice. Don’t worry about any future owners. I will look out for your plans.
Thank you Dreamer. You are so right, we’re not renovating to sell, so shouldn’t worry about future owners. If we did sell in near future for whatever reason, let’s hope the design would blow them away anyway!
