Just got the plans for the kitchen cabinets and would appreciate any thoughts anyone might have. A few things are missing from the drawing. The fridge will go on the top right. Sink is in the cabinet between the dishwasher on top left, and the stove. And french doors will be on the left wall.
I'm wondering if the island should be shorter. It's 6' x 31". Wondering if we should go down to 5' or 5'6". The HD guy (who's been great), says the adv. of 6' is that you could squeeze in 3 people at times.
I'm also wondering about glass cabinets. My wife kind of wants them above the sink to display our collection of fine Ikea dishes (mostly thrift store bought, before I found out they were actually cheaper at Ikea). But I kind of prefer the simplicity and child-proofness of all wood.
Are you going to use that island to entertain people? I guess that is unavoidable but I would think they will stand.
I wouldn't make it annoying to walk around for the sake of one more seat.
Add s sub zero type fridge and take out the cabinets above it.
