Exciting Plans

Next weekend I'm going to talk to a kitchen designer about renovating our laundry and kitchen. To get between the outdoor area and the kitchen you currently have to walk through the laundry. The laundry is quite narrow so it doesn't make for a good passage way.

I'd like something a little more like this - with no wall between the kitchen and laundry (which is hidden behind the tall cupboards near the back door):

But in a softer colour, like this:

I'm open to suggestions if anybody has any!

I like that idea, open plan is much more spcious. The softer colour will give the space a warmer feeling, especially in those colder months of the year. Can't wait to see the final product. xxx

I love your layout inspiration, Charlotte. Putting the laundry behind cupboard doors in the kitchen is a great solution when both rooms are too small.

Access to the back yard directly from the kitchen is perfect for BBQs and outdoor entertaining, or for nipping out to pick fresh vegies and herbs when you're cooking.

Thanks for your comments Lia and Kek. I'm so looking forward to a new kitchen!
