Narrow kitchen diner design

last month
last modified: last month

We currently have a compact kitchen (without space for a fridge!) and are planning to extend out to the front to increase the length. It'll be a fairly narrow room, so would like to get some design ideas of how best arrange for a kitchen with plenty of countertop space, and a table for breakfast/casual dining.

Attached is a rough drawing of the proposed extended size, with the existing door marked on. It might be nice to have a second door further up the same wall (near the front door) for coming in with shopping, but not essential if it means losing valuable space or breaking up the design. There will need to be RSJs where the current kitchen ends, about 2.3m up from the south wall. There is only the one exterior wall, which is north facing, so would like to come up with a design that maximises the natural light and takes care of cooking steam.

My preference would be to have the dining area at the window end for the light, but my partner thinks the sink and units should wrap around the north and east walls. Open to all ideas!
