advise with kitchen layout
I am about to meet with our kitchen designer for our last meeting soon and wanted to go prepared with all the advise that I could get form all of you. I have been learning a lot from reading others posts but am now ready to get some specifics from you guys. We are building, not sure if that matters here but the fridge is fixed where this design shows because it is recessed back into that wall. And I believe that the cooktop and sink would be very difficult to change at this point but please let me know if you think that some other configuration would greatly improve things.
I am already going to ask to switch out all of the base cabinets for drawers. The dishwasher is in the left cabinet next to the sink (left facing the sink). The garbage is further left to that on the interior side of the island. To the right of the sink is a column of drawers for silverware.
The mini-fridge has been moved to the middle of the row of lower cabinets without upper cabinets which is captured within a set of drawers on each side. Another column of drawers will be where the mini-fridge is depicted in this picture. Also we have decided to go with a microwave drawer in the base cabinet below where it is depicted here.
I hope that explains it well.
All advice is appreciated
