Thought and ideas please!! We're having a large extension of a kitchen/diner and living room. Would you have the kitchen at the 'back' of the house for access to the garden eg hanging washing out? Not sure if I'm over thinking it all!
Personally, I prefer the kitchen at the back of the house. When welcoming guests, you can lead them into the living room at the front and bins can be at the back for easy access for kitchen waste. Also, you don't want to stand at the sink looking like you're being nosey 😀
We've just moved a kitchen from the front of the house to the back, where the house is open plan now in to the dining room and a seating area. Kitchen was at the front when we bought, and there's no way I would have kept it there. I like to stand at my sink and gaze down the garden, and it creates a good family space.
