Hi, first time poster.
Looking to rebuild my house and wanting some feedback about the kitchen layout on how to improve it.
I’m not 100% happy with it but can’t pinpoint solutions. I feel there is wasted space but not sure how to move things for a better fit.
- I would like more bench space for appliances
Some thoughts from forums that I will incorporate:
- All drawers for base cabinet
- under bench microwave
- two 600mm ovens
- maybe move fridge to the other side for easy opening of fridge door
Grateful for any suggestions

What do you think of rotating the fridge so it is in the same place but against the pantry wall? It would not be connected to the bench anymore.
I read that it’s sometimes hard to swing fridge doors wider to access all areas if it is limited to 90 degrees.

I would do L shaped kitchen - so along wip wall and rhs wall; uninterrupted. I would move door to WIP to left hand end and put fridge next to door, then move island to face dining
We have the L- with Wip next to fridge, next to 2xoven tower. It works so well!
We also have no sink in the island which I love!

We have 1 corner cabinet - it connects with under the kitchen sink and I find it really useable. Whilat a cnr cabonet could possibly be deemed not as useful ~ the added bench space really does work really well

Thanks @Mining Man
I like seeing different ideas. Glad I posted up here.
Council has approved of the home build. I’m not sure if the internal layout is allowed to differentiate too much? My husband is afraid of making big changes that will cause ‘variations’. But adding cabinetry or modifying shelving shouldn’t be an obstacle.
