Main Floor Renovation Plan - Seek for Advice
We are planning to renovate our house and move in afterwards. The problem with our current layout is there is no powder room on the main floor. Therefore, the focus is on squeezing a powder room somewhere. We hired a very reputable designer company and they came up with three plans.
Plan 1: They reshuffle the dinning room and the kitchen. Currently, the kitchen is on the right and the dining room is on the left. They put the powder room beside the dinning room.
Pros: Power room is at least not "in the kitchen" and the closet near the entrance is saved.
Cons: High cost.
Plan 2: They reshuffle part of the kitchen. The cooktop and built-in oven are moved to the left. The powder room is squeezed into the corner of the kitchen.
Pros: The power room is of decent size. Lower cost compares to Plan 1. The closet near the entrance is saved.
Cons: The power room is "in the kitchen", not sure if buyers will care when we resell it several years later.
Plan 3: They put the powder room in the closet near the entrance.
Pros: Lowest cost, since the kitchen is basically untouched. The powder room is away from the kitchen.
Cons: There is no closet on the main floor anymore. The living room is not a square anymore (a corner is cut).
Which one do you suggest? Please kindly evaluate the options both from the convenience and resell value perspectives. Any help is much appreciated.
