CIRP : Kitchen renovation planning
CIRP = Casa Idaman Renovation Project
I still have a headache of what to do with my sweet little kitchen. Wall hacking for installing additional power points will start soon, so I need to quickly finalize the layout of my kitchen, and have additional power points at the place where I will be having my built in oven, microwave and other electrical appliances.
And also, with plaster ceiling work will start at the same time, and I also need to finalize where to put the downlight, and the extra ceiling power point for bar lamp.
Marts said that Ikea always have a solution for small kitchen. So, with the floor plan that I have done the initial measurement, and the photo of my empty kitchen above, I went to Ikea again today to meet the kitchen designer there.
After filling up the form, I’ve been put in the queue, then 1/2 an hour later, it’s my turn to meet the designer.
This is how my kitchen will look like, equipped with a bar.
Another view from in front of the entrance to my house.
I’m quite happy with the layout. Even with the kitchen area this small, the guy that design my kitchen still manage to have a more natural and ergonomic “work triangle”.
From the look of it, my kitchen is a parallel kitchen, which is geared for food preparation (like I always cook at home. LOL)
The cost of this combination is a bit out of my budget. If I’m going ahead with this, I might simplify more by just having a hollow bar (and not using cabinet like now) and remove the wall cabinet on the storage zone.
And again, this will be for my second phase of renovation, which may happened in several years to come.
