Help with near final kitchen layout please!
We are expanding our kitchen, and I think we're close. We are deciding b/t this version that I've attached, and asking our architect to take out the butler service area (currently outside the dining room), move the pantry door all the way down to right next to dining room wall, and the basically slide everything on that wall toward the dining room (the stove, fridge, etc), so that the fridge is not across from the peninsula. We would then put a small counter next to fridge on the other side for keys, etc. We would slide the small sink in the island down too so it's closer to the stove.
The cons is that the stove would no longer be centered right across the large sink and we would no longer have butler serving area. The pro with the change is that the fridge is not across from the peninsula.
Would love your thoughts on this. Thanks in advance!!!
