Kitchen island spacing question
This is my first post but I've read the site for a while and have gotten some great information off of it.
I have a question about the layout of my new kitchen. Attached is a picture of what it will look like (apologize for the lack of scale).
My concern is with the size of the island I will only have ~32" between the island and some of my back cabinets. It is really only one corner of the island that this affects and this will likely be the least traveled part of the kitchen
My one option is to tear out the pantry I just finished framing out and make it about 4 inches shallower.
My question is do you think it is worth tearing out the pantry and re-framing it (not drywalled yet) or will I be ok with that 32" pathway on that one corner of the island. The rest of that side of the island has at least 40" between it and the other set of cabinets.
Moving the island down will also put my sink more in front of my fridge which I am not sure I want.
