How big is your island?
Would you mind sharing how large your island is and if you have the main sink, prep sink, cooktop, DW, trash, and seating there. If you could change anything, what would it be? Would you like it bigger? Smaller?
this is how i envision using mt kitchen and island. I would like my main prep and main sink in my island with the trash and DW, and while working, I could look over and see my children doing homework or playing. Currently my kitchen is small so the sink is to my left and I prep over the DW. It makes things conveniently located that I prep and clean at the same time and don't let dirty dishes sitting on my counters or sink. Then to the range wall I'd have my secondary sink on the same run for washing my pots and pan. The dish rack would go there as well and not take centre stage of the island. And since cleanup and prep together, there are no meat juices and stuff dripping on my floors to the "cleanup sink". But to have a trash, sink DW, prep and seating, what is the minimum size island needed?
Can someone else share how they use their prep sink, cleanup sink and DW. Any problems with dripping stuff and having a "long" trek across the kitchen from prep to cleaning. I just feel that if I have a separate clean up area, that takes a good 5-6 steps over, I may start piling dirty dishes there until I could get to it
