Island cabinet layout
Here is a picture of the kitchen layout. The cabinet selections arent set in stone yet. I need help finalizing. I think since I already have pot & pan draws flanking the range, I should change the 42" drawers that are in the island.
The island is supposed to be 48" wide by 66" long. On the end by the range I was planning a 21" wide double trash pullout facing the main sink. Then across from that would be a 24" sink base that would face the range and hold a prep sink. I know the picture above is showing a 27" SB. But I think I'll change it to 24".
On the other end of the island (facing the kitchen table), I was toying with the idea of having a 12" deep cabinet to hold cookbooks. We had something like this in our old kitchen, and we have alot of cookbooks to hold. But I am wondering if a 48" wide 12" deep cabinet is too much? Should it be 24" wide and have another 12" wide 12" deep cabinet on either side? or will the 48" wide cabinet look fine?
Then the middle of the island is undetermined. I figured on the sink side I have 33" left. So maybe a 27" wide bank of drawers and a 6" wide open wine rack? And on the fridge side I have 30" left of space. So maybe just a 30" wide bank of drawers?
