Sub Panel needed

ok the project call for a sub panel install in a renovated extension, the main panel is 200A, the sub panel will feed a small kitchen, so I stove 40a a fridge and two 20a outlet, there will be a small bathroom with GFI outlet and a bedroom, I'm not certain yet of the dimension of the extension. the heating will also be electrical, a 240v-20A-dbl breaker should be enough for maximum 3750watts. of course lights and a few regular 15a outlet, So my question is, can I simply put a 60A sub panel or I need a 100A, I suppose it will during winter that the demand could be high. I think 60A is enough but I'm still not certain.

Definitely a 100 amp sub panel so you have enough spaces for breakers. While a 100 amp subpanel can be on a 60 amp breaker in this case a 100 amp breaker makes sense because of the stove.
