Kitchens Facing Front of House

We're thinking about gutting our front-facing kitchen. Besides being outdated, I really dislike the fact that we have a giant picture window right next to our table and all of our neighbors can see us eating. And, since the kitchen sink also faces the front, I feel like I'm spying on our neighbors everytime I look outside while doing dishes!

I go back and forth whether or not to "shift" the kitchen so that it becomes more centered to the house. In other words, I can't decide whether to put the main sink and dishwasher on the island so that I'm facing the family room when doing dishes vs. the front yard.

I guess I'm just looking for some general ideas to make a front-facing kitchen more private.

Thanks in advance!
