LOL those are HUGE bedrooms for my area. You could put a king sized bed in every one of those bedrooms. Not too small at all. I’d be more upset that the kitchen seems really small with a huge space for a table – i’d rather have more cabinets, etc. I’ve never seen a walk-in closet off a garage either – that’s handy!

i think the room sizes are great! the kitchen is a little small but it looks like it also has an island for more counter space so that is helpful. Maybe get rid of the breakfast area and make the kitchen a little bigger.

What’s the part in the kitchen by the stairs?  Is that an island?  I can’t really picture that layout, it seems a little odd to me.

I agree that some of the rooms seem small. That room that’s 11’6″ by 9’7″ will be tiny. And if I understand it will also have a sloped ceiling? It seems like it would be great for an office or a nursery, but it would be difficult for a kids bedroom once they’re older. I would definiitely try to expand that bedroom. The kitchen also might be small. It’s hard to tell. If that’s an island it will help alot though. The breakfast nook seems huge. Maybe you could use some of that space for the kitchen somehow? Other than these two things though this house seems great! It also has a lot of storage which is really nice.

The layout does not meet my requirements, but we have some weird ones.  🙂

The bedrooms are fine.  You’d use that smaller bedroom as an office and put a futon in it anyway, right?  The bigger one will easy fit a queen size bed and couple side tables, which is all you’ll put in a guest room.  Maybe a small dresser to store your winter clothes in summer.

I would make the kitchen larger!

I would rework the layout of the cabinets in the kitchen. Right now the peninsula divides the space and takes up too much room for the use you would get out of it. I would do cabinets all along that wall- uppers and lowers- and get or make an island on industrial type castors that can be used in the kitchen for prep and the breakfast room as a sideboard.

From the floorplan, it’s hard to tell how much cabinet space the kitchen has. I only see maybe 4 upper cabinets in the kitchen. Is there another sheet that shows the cabinets from a face-on view? (I’m a stickler for storage in the kitchen, so it would be a big deal to me.)

The bedroom above the dining room will be really small. It might be good for an office. The other bedrooms seem good sized.

I wouldn’t worry about the great room. It looks like a good size, and the two story ceiling will make it feel bigger.

@jpalm13:  i like the flow of the floor plan but the rooms seem small to me.  the kitchen is very small and i would be concerned about the dining room.  my formal dining table is long and seats 8+ so that would never work.  i guess if you had a large square table it could work.

did you go into a model of this home?  was it furnished?  will your furniture fit to this plan?

@jpalm13:  i like your layout of the kitchen better with the island.  personally, i would prefer the sink on the north wall (not in the corner) with the dw to the left of it and the stove on the east wall.

@jpalm13:  I prefer the second kitchen layout, but without measurements it’s a bit hard to tell how much space you’ll actually have.  I would personally rather have a large kitchen with a smaller breakfast area.
