Kitchen Diner Design Ideas Needed

Postby pies » Fri Aug 26, 2016 10:26 am


I'm fairly new to being able to have the money and inclination to design a new kitchen. The money being saved for many years, the inclination comes from child number 2 needing the current dining room as a bedroom!

I have, what is essentially a 2.7 metre by 3.6 metre kitchen (not including the odd enclave). I'm not used to a large kitchen, so do not require too much worktop space, but enough to just prepare dinner would be fine. We would like to fit a table that could fit 4 comfortably and 6 at a push.

We have been to the usual B&Q, Wickes and Howdens for ideas, but they have not come back with anything that we hadn't thought of.

We have investigated an extension idea - but that is out of our budget, so we're looking to use the space we have!

I am/have thought about having a bench seat style table, that may allow for space saving. Maybe a small 'U' style kitchen near the window. But I'm sure that there is a simple solution to our problem. Does anyone have any ideas?

I have attached a rough floor plan.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, have you looked on Pinterest for ideas? I think you could save space using a kind of banquet style seating arrangement against kitchen units and will be a more effective use of space. Type in kitchen diner, and banquet seating. Hth
