Layout #1: The Family Kitchen

Areas for TV and homework.

1. An expansive peninsula without a sink can be used for food prep, casual family meals and as a homework station for kids. A durable material like quartz is a great low-maintenance option for a family.

2. Situating one extra-deep sink in the centre of the long counter means it will have plenty of elbow room on either side, and a single-hole faucet with extendable hose makes cleanup a breeze.

3. Installing generous upper and lower cabinets on one wall means essentials like pantry foods and everyday dishware can be stored in one place.

4. Housing the fridge and range on the same stretch of counter across from the sink creates a work triangle with loads of open floor space and flow.

5. A double oven ups the room's functionality, allowing for efficient cooking of big or small meals.

6. An office nook is integrated in one corner as a place for paying bills or a second homework zone. A wall sconce negates the need for a desk lamp.

7. An armchair is a spot for reading, and a wall-mounted TV creates a cosy hub for watching a movie.
