Struggling with bungalow layout

last month


New here, wanted to see if I can get some advice and suggestions from others.

We have a bungalow with somewhat an interesting layout:

There are a few annoying things about the space we have at the moment:

* Kitchen/utility too small

* Entrance is very small

* Access to the kitchen between sofas and TV in the living room

* Dining room too small

* Rear walls don't have enough glass so the view to back garden is mostly blocked

What we'd like is:

* A large entrance that separates most of the rooms, creating a better flow to the house

* Larger kitchen / diner / family room

* A utility / prep kitchen for the more messy and bulky cooking

* Separate, more private family / drawing room

* 4 bedrooms + a guest bedroom

* Study room

* Gym

I'm open to any suggestions on utilising the space and planning to knock the utility and garage down and add a side extension, also might move the rear walls back. Happy to move any of the internal even main walls around as the roof needs replacing. Also, all doors and windows are in need of change so happy to move them around. We have just under an acre plot so space isn't an issue.

We were thinking about even starting fresh but that is likely to cost a lot more.

Thank you in advance for any advice.
