Floorplan/layout help - kitchen/dinner/familiy room

2 years ago


We're in the process of finalising our bungalow extension/ reconfiguration plans and I'm posting to see what people think/get some advise. This is the 2nd set of plans we have done as we were originally going to raise the roof and add a 2nd story but the planning department were opposed to it and it was proving very costly so this single story option is a comprise to give us what we would like without making such major structural changes.

Our main requirements are to add a fourth bedroom (keeping the bedrooms to one end of the property), add a separate study (we both work from home occasionally), add an ensuite and create a big kitchen/dinning/family space and add a utility. We have two small children. We think we have a plan we're happy with (see photo) but welcome any thoughts - we're particular struggling with the kitchen/dinner/family space and if this works. This is an extension into the current car port and to the rear. It is a large space 5468m wide and 9522m long but I'm struggling on layout. We would like a kitchen area, dinning area and sofa TV area - I was thinking we would have them one then the other as its not wide enough to have side by side. I can't see where we would have the TV if we have the corner bi folds but these work for the patio area. We can still amend the layout - I was wondering whether it is too big and to make the garage a foot or two wider. The current roof on the carport and garage is flat - our planner has drawn us a flat roof option (which he favours), pitch at the front and flat at the back and a full pitch option. We prefer the pitched we think.

I've also attached the current floor plan.

Any help, thoughts would be much appreciated.
