We are building a home and recently met with our kitchen designer. Our kitchen will be 14ft. Our architect drew in a 6ft kitchen island with 3'9" clearance on each side. My goal was to move the island a bit towards the sink and do an overhang on opposite side. Do you think this overhang and seating will still allow for adequate walking space behind? A little background, we have a family of 5; 3 children ages 13, 11 and 5. The island seating area would be used for breakfast and conversation while I am cooking. My husband and I will be in the space together as well. My goal is to have this island for eating and preparing food. I am attaching layout below. The range will be move to opposite end of counter next to sink and fridge will be moved to the left as not to interfere with that entranceway. Thoughts? Thanks!
