We're hoping to get planning permission for a wraparound extension to a Victorian terrace in a few weeks so need to get the rough kitchen layout sorted for the builders. We've spoken to a couple of companies but with only plans to go off it was more us leading them to a design rather than them proposing possible layouts. I managed to draw up the following design that seemed to make good use of the space but we're very keen to get people's views on it and other ideas we could work with.
There's a few considerations:
Chimney Breast - It would be nice to keep it as a period feature and save the added cost of removing it. But I don't know it's workable in it's current position as it sits quite close to the entrance with two steps down
Island vs Peninsula - We always had in mind an island but given how narrow these Victorian terraces are it's common for the island to run lengthways so you're staring at a wall when using it. Peninsula appears more practical as gives a view out in to the garden when using the breakfast bar area to prep food
Boiler - Needs to be housed near an external wall/roof
We'd like it to feel like a open kitchen/dining space so had avoided lots of tall units as it could close in on the space. The side and end roof is pitched
