Layout help needed with too big but too small kitchen
Our current kitchen is large - between the stove and the sink, there is almost 9 feet of floor space. That's a lot of wasted space between the two and I would love more prep space that an island can provide.
An architect drew up this for me - it adds a 6x2.5 island with a prep sink, that will help shorten the triangle. It does shrink the footprint - between the sink and island and then the island and stove, the space is about 37" wide. This is a fairly new house and I don't want to knock down walls and do a complete reno.
What suggestions/solutions do you bright people have? And this may be for another post, but what do I need to have in the island (outside of electrical outlets) to maximize its effectiveness?
