Help with first project!

1 Reply

Ladies and gentlemen I present to you my first project! So the wife and I are having a really hard time figuring out what the lay out of this kitchen should be. What is your take on it? This will be a house hack and in a year or two it will turn into a rental. Another side note is this will be an upscale rental. (Hardwood floors stainless steel appliances). Pictures and measurements of said project are attached. Any suggestions would be useful! Thanks in advance.

I would start by walking a few local open houses/market homes to see what kind of kitchen is being offered in your area. After that you can get some free advice (and even some material estimates) from a somewhat knowledgeable rep at the local Home Depot or Lowes. All of these recommendations are free, quick, and will relate to your market. If I offer advice for what works in my area, or at my rentals, it would be WAY off from your market I am sure. I love my primary home, but I always watch the market for similar homes to come up and I go ahead and tour them for some creative ideas I may want to implement down the road.

Best of luck! Keep us updated!
