Now it may seem like your loosing pantry space in configuration 2 but the storage space is still actually still there just spread out better. Any questions drop me a line.

Hi @woolfj,

 

Just wanted to check in and see how you were going with this project. It's been a hugely popular conversation on Workshop this year - many thanks for kicking it off. Obviously many other people have kitchens like yours in need of an update.

Re: Ideas for kitchen design to renovate old 70s kitchen

This is a fascinating project that I have just stumbled upon and would be really interested to see how it worked out.

From what I have read I have two questions.
Did you consider using some of your laundry space as a butlers pantry? Being able to clear out the cupboards of some bulky or not often used kitchen gear may be a huge benefit
Also don’t underestimate how much difference that 25cm from moving the .....(sorry lost what it was you were reluctant to address). If not much actual space is gained the visual effect can be huge. Also getting the microwave off the bench will declutter working space significantly.

Re: Ideas for kitchen design to renovate old 70s kitchen

Fantastic work as always @redracer01! I see the program you are utilising has improved significantly over the past 10 months. I must say the additional detail certainly allows you to envisage the final look more adequately.

 

Many thanks for contributing the updated design as I trust members coming across this discussion will appreciate it.

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @jasmin26. It's great to have you join us and many thanks for your question.

 

Was it @Jason's own kitchen renovation you were interested in knowing the details of or the Bunnings renovation with before and after pictures posted on the first page of this discussion?

 

Are you planning your own kitchen renovation in the near future? It would be great to follow along and we would encourage you to let us know if you need any assistance or if you would like to share your project with the community.
