The kits I won on ebay arrived yesterday. I took the kitchen cabinets out of the bags to play with them the minute I saw them. I was planning on making all of my cabinetry, so that I could get exactly the fit I want, but these just might work.
I like the layout on the left, but it won't quite fit...though I could sand down the end of one of the pieces enough to squeeze it in, then build cabinetry with a sink in the bay window...I'd have to move the light above the stove over a little bit...and I could make the top of the cabinet to the left of the stove into a butcher block. I don't like that the backsplash doesn't wrap around the corners in this scenario, but I could fake it with paper.
I could use the layout on the right, but I'd have to build some shelving in the left hand corner to fill that gap...or I could cut the large cabinet into two pieces, push one into the corner, then build a sink in between them...but I don't like that the side of the countertop isn't finished...and I don't like the refrigerator all the way to the right like that.
In either case, the stove is a little tall, I wonder if I can chop some off the bottom...
Hmm...I've got some thinking to do.
