Where would YOU prep in this kitchen?
Below is our layout and it's definitely a work in progress. In order to determine if we have the right space in the right place, I'm trying to figure out where we would store things in relation to where we would work. Actual "prepping" is a somewhat foreign concept to me, (our current kitchen has very little counter space and prior to this house we lived in an NYC apartment that barely had a kitchen), so please forgive my ignorance on this topic!
I think that conceptually I should be prepping on long end of the island, but I'm worried that would cause issues with the sink and DW. If I prep on the range side of the island, I have more space behind me, but I wouldn't have any tools close at hand. Someone on my layout thread suggested putting a prep sink in the lower left hand corner of the island and moving the third seat on the upper right (short-side). I really like this concept because I could prep on the range side to the left of the prep sink with a drawer full of tools right in front of me. But, it's a no go because the seat on the short-side would jut way too far into the LR. I'm afraid that with this set-up, I'll end up prepping in the corner. This seems like it wouldn't be good, but frankly, I don't know if it's good, bad, or neutral. Thoughts?
