Looking for design feedback on a few points below, and any other improvement opportunities.
Putting a wall of windows above the sink with no uppers - I think we'll use the island for cups & plates, and there seems to be plenty of other storage.
Location of refrigerator - I know this is not functionally ideal, but we have a pretty firm requirement that there will be no sink or cooktop in the island. So I think that leaves only that location for the fridge.
My wife would like one of those 2-drawer Fisher Paykel drawer dishwashers + a standard dishwasher. Should the drawers be in the DW1 spot? Or DW2?
Trash to right of sink vs. in island behind the sink?
Stainless or paneled refrigerator? We have 8ft ceilings and I don't want the 48" refrigerator/columns to look too big. My gut says paneled. Two different renderings below. Thinking either 30+18in columns, or the 48" SZ french door.
Induction cooktop vs. induction range - leaning cooktop + double ovens.
Double ovens with microwave above vs. microwave drawer somewhere in the island. The microwave on the stack will be at about 5'. Not a problem for my wife or I to reach.
2'6" from the cooktop to the ovens stack. I thought a little closer would be nice, but seems like the best way to design the wall is to push those to the end.
