kitchen layout advice for new kitchen
We are in the process of building a new home and are at the point where we are picking the kitchen cabinet design and appliances. The house has a rough frame on it, but can be easily changed at this point if we want to fine tune the cabinets.
My architect proposed a layout which is shown here. We could not fit that many cabinets to the right of the window due to the wall space. One idea that the kitchen designer suggested was to put in a wall from that connects the island to the back wall effectively turning this into one big peninsula with attached island? My architect is not a fan of this as he feels that it will cut down walking access into the kitchen and reduce a large open expanse all the way from kitchen into the living room. I'm not a kitchen expert so I was wondering if anybody had any recommendations?
Thanks a bunch for any advice!
