I thought that these kitchen layout ideas were really cool, but I am wondering how well it actually works in real life. I love the idea of an open concept home, but then I also think about how noisy my family can be and how much commotion tends to be in the kitchen or where the televisions are, so I can't really imagine have the kitchen placed in the center of the entire main floor. Don't get me wrong, everything from the kitchen island ideas that they used to all of the decorative finishes are just stunning and I would love to replicate just about everything. Maybe if I just boxed in the kitchen a little bit instead of having it out in the open, it would work better for our family.
I was so please with the kitchen layout ideas that our architect came up with for our new home because it feels very open, but the space is still definitely portioned off nicely from the rest of the main living area. It has been such a trip moving from a small kitchen design in our old townhouse to this huge spacious open concept main floor. I loved cooking before, but it is at a whole new level now that we moved in because I feel like a chef every time I fix even just a snack in here. I actually came up with the inspiration for this design while looking through a small kitchen ideas 2020 gallery and shared the photos with our architect to see how we could translate this into a much larger space.
I am really pleased with the kitchen layout ideas that I pulled together for our renovations (all on my own, thank you very much!) I actually used one of those free home design programs that you can download from the app store or find just about anywhere by googling. I got my kitchen remodel ideas from this site, pinterest, and some of my favorite magazines (Southern Living especially) and then plugged it all into that program. I was able to play around with everything from cabinet shapes and sizes, to color palette, tiling, and floor options. I sourced most of the supplies from our local Home Depot, and subcontracted tradesmen to complete the main items that I did not feel comfortable handling on my own.
I would love some input on kitchen layout ideas to try to take advantage of this awkwardly designed space (and the three separate islands in it). In general, I am actually very pleased with the actual kitchen design because it is fresh and modern, but with some traditional elements that make it feel very elegant. The fact that there are two separate islands in very different zones of the kitchen, makes traffic flow awkward when we have guests because people are not sure which area to sit. Do any architects or interior decorators on here have thoughts on ways that we could make these kitchen layouts work better? I have wracked my brain trying to come up with ideas, but so far I just can't figure anything out.
This has to be one of my very favorite kitchen layout ideas that I have seen on here, probably because it feels much more like a formal dining room than a kitchen. The cherry custom cabinets are absolutely gorgeous and look like a high end china cabinet rather than your standard units that you install in the kitchen for general storage. Even better is the large kitchen island with built in ice maker and wine cooler, topped off with two elegant chandeliers hanging above. I have never been one for casual fast decor, so the stately feel of this space really speaks to me on multiple levels. So much so, that I think I am going to save these photos to send to my designer as inspiration for the kitchen remodel that we are in the process of planning.
I think that this is by far one of the best kitchen layout ideas that I have seen on here, mostly because it incorporates an island but without a stove in the center as well. I know that most people really enjoy kitchen design ideas that feature large range in the center of the island because it allows for prep space, but I feel that it gets in the way and can be a potential safety hazard if you have young children (and incorporate seating like this home). I do a lot of cooking and meal preparing for my family, so I much prefer to keep a simple and sleek countertop that I can spread all of my ingredients and equipment out on and that can then be easily cleaned.
