So I was up really late last night trying to design the kitchen. I've decided to place the kitchen in the front of the trailer but with an inside width of 7'3" and countertops that have to be 2' deep I'm struggling with placing appliances. I really want to keep an open feel.
My solution was to draw out the area, true to size, on the carpet of our existing house with yellow chalk (same for the bathroom design). That way I can walk through the placements and see where the design is pinched or where it just doesn't work, visually. Also, making changes is as easy as dusting the carpet and when I have what I want and transfer it to paper I just vacuum, which I needed to do anyway. : )
