Here, you can download the first draft of the kitchen design. I'll post the link to the 2nd draft as soon as I receive it.

And here are the pics.

I love being on your journey.

Vent hood? What's above the sink? I don't understand where the theatre/living space is relative to the kitchen.

Brilliant ideas all around.

Yes, there will be an exhaust hood over the range. It will be a powerful one for the stir-frying I intend to do. It will be ducted directly to the outside on that wall.

Tom, hopefully these pictures will help a little more with the home theater area in relation to the kitchen and bedroom.

Coming down the stairwell, you can see the blue tape around the corner marking where the base cabinets for the kitchen will be.



At the base of the stairwell entrance, showing the edge of the other kitchen wall, the bedroom in the corner straight ahead, and the screen for the home theater area will be on the far wall with the window above the ledge:



Looking straight ahead at where the screen will be, and of course that support post at the left is where I plan to build the enclosure for the refrigerator. As you can see, it intrudes into the home theater area a bit, but hopefully not enough to get under my skin forever. Compromises, I tell you.

Oh, and I had them leave the space above the sink empty simply because I got this faucet/sprayer which is pretty tall. I'll probably put a little shelf or two above and have some hooks for dishwashing stuff.

Isn't it your job to photoshop them in?

If you look at the sixth image in post #395337, the one with the stairwell entrance in the background, it's the area to the left, where the chair and stack of ceiling tiles are, directly opposite the side where the kitchen will be. That's well behind where the seating in the HT section will be, so I'll have room for a dining set.

Me again. Anyone have experience with putty pads for the backs of electrical outlet boxes? Nick, maybe? I'd like to block as much sound from the bathroom as I can, so I thought of using them since I'll have several electrical boxes on that wall between the kitchen and the bathroom. Those will be the weakest points for sound leakage, I'd imagine.

This stuff is significantly cheaper, however, and I was wondering if anyone knew if it would be as effective. I don't care about fire rating, just sound. It seemed like it could be almost the same product, simply marketed differently.

No dishwasher?

I'm totally paranoid about not having enough space, which colors my perception.

We've got a commercial range hood. My experience makes me hesitant to have open shelves adjacent to the range area. No matter how good your hood is, anything on those shelves is going to get greasy eventually. I'm having a hard time visualizing the hood area, and understanding why the uppers aren't symmetrical.

How about one of those short, wide cabinets up high above the sink? You could mount some lighting on the bottom of it.

I don't know how I feel about the contrasting, white drawer/door fronts on the island and uppers.

I'm really excited for you! What fun!
