We found a plan we love, i am not sure if the kitchen is functional and if its not how would you redo it

Here is a link that might be useful:

You haven't told us about you, your family, your lifestyle, etc. This information would be very useful...see the "Layout Help" topic in the "Read Me" thread for a discussion of what information we need to give you the best design help. [You may have given us the info in another thread, but this is the thread you're asking for help on...]

Without much to go on, I did come up with a fairly quick layout...note that it moves the doorway to the kitchen from the Gallery so that traffic goes straight through the kitchen w/o straying into the Prep & Cooking Zones and even the Cleanup Zone is somewhat removed from the path. I suggest extending the Gallery so the kitchen doorway is still in the Gallery. Doing this has the added advantage of a bit of additional privacy & sound mitigation for Bedroom #3 (the longer wall creates a small alcove to the doorway to that bedroom.)

There are other options that I'm sure others will mention!

-Only one sink with dishwasher next to it
-I would like a nice prep area between sink and cooktop
