The layout of this kitchen was completed for a client as a preliminary layout for review. Colors and door styles may change, however the layout revolves around the placement of the appliances as well as the desk. The windows are centered over the sink with enough space between the sink and range top to provide plenty of workspace. Note the lowered island table…here I have engineered a free-span suspended semi-circular top with a steel under carriage to support the load of the top for the potential that a kid and/or an adult sitting on top. All of the plumbing is be placed in the dead space between the cabinets so there are no obstructions in any cabinets in the island.
The last image (#3) shows the under counter microwave drawer installed flush with the cabinets. On each side of the microwave will be a pull-out waste on one side and a pull-out recycle on the other. You can see this by looking at the door handle that is centered and horizontal on the door. I have added as many pullouts as allowed by design and all drawers along the top line up throughout.
All of this done 100% in SketchUp along with the CabMaker Plugin…what a great plug-in. When this kitchen is done I will be able to send it to any cabinet maker for pricing as I will have a complete cutlist and material list for 100% of all the parts associated with each cabinet.
