About Ready to Start Cabinet Build

Hi all,

We received our pretty much final drawings, and I would love another set(s) of eyes to look over them and help identify any problems that need to be addressed or anything that comes across as a significant mistake.

Here is the overall perspective:

Here is the overhead of the cabinets:

Here are the sink wall cabinets:

Here are the range wall cabinets:

Here are the refrigerator cabinets:

That's going to be so wonderful when it's done! One thing did catch my eye, not a serious mistake, I'm just wondering why you have the prep sink right next to a dining spot, and the MW on the corner of the island. How do you think it might work if you swapped those two, and put the prep sink on the corner, and put the MW next to the dining stool?

Where are you going to store your mixing bowls, cutting boards, utensils, etc. for prep? I don't like the sink next to the seating, especially if there are backs on the stools as you show.

Thanks for the comments on the sink; I do appreciate the concerns. Through our design process, the poor sink has been nearly every place it could go on the island. We did not want it to be to the right, closer to the end, as that would cut into prime work space and interfere with the refrigerator landing spot. It is also is marginally more convenient for someone to come in from the dining room and use that sink without getting in the way of the cooking. We compromised on this location.

As for where we store utensils, mixing bowls, etc., we will be using the top drawers to the right and left of the range for utensils and then the 15" deep cabinet below the island behind where the microwave goes and opposite the sink. We will also have others in other places, as well.
