Kitchen designer not so helpful - Need your help!
We're building a new home (a bit about our family - currently it's the hubby and me plus our two boys ages 5 and 3, but we're in the process of adopting a third. I'm also the only one that cooks in the house.) I hired a kitchen designer to help with the plans. I was hoping she'd have some suggestions, but hasn't been too helpful.
My contractor is waiting on the kitchen designs so that plumbing, electrical and heating can be put in the appropriate places. I don't have a final version from the designer, so attached below is my rough draft I did in Excel. I will have upper cabinets along the range wall, but didn't include them on the drawing.
My main concern is appliance placement, which I need to finalize ASAP. I'm not sure where to put the second dishwasher and does anyone know, can a microwave drawer be put next to a beverage fridge? I've asked both our project supervisor and the kitchen designer this question and they were going to check with the electrician but I haven't heard back yet.
Do you have any suggestions? Do you see something that could be troublesome? Thanks for your help!
