Home: New Kitchen Layout Plan (Drawings by Me!)

Today (10th July 12) I decided to draw up a new layout of my kitchen floor plan.  Which is 90% accurate to what it should be once the builders have gutted and plastered the kitchen.  
5 ceiling lights are to be staggared in two rows down the center of the kitchen if possible.

Finally a bifolding door is to be fitted between the kitchen and the hallway.


I was asked to draw up a rough guide to where what cupboards and appliances etc were going and so I drew up two rough guides to show what is going where.

-Wall to the left as you walk in from the hall: Very much not to scale, just a rough working idea (guide) of how the kitchen might look once finished. 

Including one double socket behind small cupboard with access at the back for the oven plug and washing-machine plug.  Then two double sockets on the wall to the left of the kitchen wall for
appliances etc. 

The tiles we decided would look better in black tiling further up the wall and adding border tiles to the top, over all saving over £50 due to border tiles!  (Estimate = Total 277 tiles needed. (44 tiles per £11.04 box) = 7 boxes = £77.28 + Boardertiles 16 (£3 each) = £48  ~ Grand total =£125.28  (Wickes: Cosmopolitan Black Wall Tile, Product Code: 221119)

Additionally will have to cut into the back of the single wall unit due to boxed off pipes on the wall (total current box size deep 2"  =  5.1cm  & wide 3"  =  7.6cm).


-Wall to the right as you walk in from the hall: Very much not to scale, just a rough working idea (guide) of how the kitchen might look once finished. 

Including one double socket behind fridge/freezer for fridge/freezer and blow heater as seen on fascia bored.  Then two double sockets on the wall to the left of the kitchen wall for appliances etc.  Finally another accessable double socket for tumble dryer down the bottom  left of that wall.

Additionally new porter-hole surround and shelf above to finish off that alcoving space.

Alcove counter top is also to be made as flush as possible with the other counter top (fussy-cut if nessesary) and/or flush to wall, still with easy access to the backdoor.

Ps. Decided to go for a Wickes kitchen as it was equally nice if not nicer, which saved us way over £2000 and then some.  Which meant we could get other stuff and think about the next project.  Project-Pergoda!

      Anyway thank you for what you said Katy. These are only rough designs to give the builder an idea (plan) of roughly how it 'should' look once finished...
