Need a new kitchen - weird shape - where to start?

Re: Need a new kitchen - weird shape - where to start?

Welcome to the Workshop community @Rosana. What a great question which is common among first-time renovators.

 

Planning is always the best way to begin. You need to decide what you want to achieve and your goals. Here's a guide on planning your kitchen renovation. No doubt you can take plenty of inspiration from our talented members of the community and their own projects here.

 

You also need to decide on your budget which will affect the finishes of the kitchen. This guide to renovation on a budget might be helpful for that.

 

There is also a great kitchen planner which will allow you to start setting out the kitchen and checking some different finishes for benchtops and cabinetry. The talented @redracer01 might be able to assist us with some ideas here.

 

I look forward to seeing what our fantastic community members can come up with for your kitchen. 

 

Mitchell

Thank you MitchellMC! Will have a look at those links. It's very scary and overwhelming for me and am so glad to find this community website and will read what everyone is doing. We tried to get quotes but people fail to get back. I think everyone is so busy because of the covid-19.

Hello @Rosana 

 

Would it be possible for you to sketch on some paper the actual wall layout and measurements of the kitchen area and post it here on workshop. It would give me a better idea of how to layout your kitchen. Thanks!

Hi kitchen measurements 2020 cropped.jpg@redracer01,

 

I've uploaded the kitchen layout and measurements. Sorry it took a while to measure. We've got boxes all over the place now and hard to move about.

 

Thank you for your help!

Great plan @Rosana, that makes things very easy to visualise and I'm sure will help @redracer01 a great deal.

 

I'm also interested if experienced renovator @Mathy might like to share her thoughts.

Hi @Jason
This image to show where the sink and cabinets are. We're going to lose the ugly table bench thingy in the middle. Tried using the Kaboodle software, but it couldn't register for some reason, I think it is because it is a weird shape. Trying to find other softwares at the moment.

Hi redracer01

 

That is fantastic! It was exactly what I was thinking too! Including the island! Was thinking the same. Thank you so much for this redracer01! You did a marvellous job of putting the arched doorway and arched oven area. Thank you again.
