Reconfigure flat - what’s my best option

Hello, I’ve just purchased a flat and would like to rearrange my bathroom and kitchen.

Currently we would have to go through the kitchen to access the bathroom and we aren’t comfortable with this idea.

I would be grateful if you could advise on the best layout Retaining two Bedrooms.

Thanks Yvonne

    Hi Yvonne!

    Would you consider swithcing the possition of the samll bedroom and the living area? You can make one big connected space with the entrance hall, hte kitchen space, the small bedroom and part of the actual living room.

    The living room will face South East ( nice orientation, much better tan Noth West). This will allow you to change the position of the bathroom door, or at least, not feel that you need to go across the kitchen to go to the bathroom.

    I attach some photos of an apartment we renovated, where the kitchen is right on the entrance hall, and open to the living area...

    You could swap move the position of all of the rooms but you need to be sure if this is possible (lease restrictions and structural issues) and budget too.
    Unless you are in a very expensive postcode this probably doesn’t make financial sense to consider

    Hi Yvonne,

    It depends how the soil pipes are configured and how you can access them.

    Here are 2 rough sketches of one or two shower room options that you might be able to achieve. You might also gain more efficient space in bedroom 1 and the kitchen too. I’m assuming internal stud walls.

    Hi Yvonne, I had the same idea of @ Mirasur Proyectos SL. If you switch the living room with the small bedroom, you could knock down the wall between the bedroom and what is now the bathroom. You might need to make the current kitchen small since it will become your bathroom.

    I hope it helps

    Thanks all for responding this is really helpful.

    Our initial thoughts were to have two bedrooms at the front of the property and swap the larger bedroom to bathroom and kitchen. Having some sort of open plan effect - effectively going through the living room to kitchen and bathroom access to the entrance hall. But will be dependent on soil pipe and seems quite significant.

    If you flip the second bedroom to the right, it would leave space for a smaller internal bathroom off the hall, and larger kitchen off the living space. Makes more sense in my head to have it this way round! Not sure if it would actually be allowed, but not too far from soil pipes hopefully
