Kitchen Design

8 years ago
I need help with the kitchen design We are using a design build firm and we discussed an L shaped kitchen with an 8x5 island. To me this seems to be a U shaped kitchen. I would like to relocate the frig/freezer so the space along the wall is open, leaving space so the island could be oriented the other way (with stools backing to eating area). By leaving that wall blank, we will lose storage but it seems with a pantry and dry bar we should have enough storage.

My questions are: How could I arrange the kitchen to get the island the opposite way? We have five kids and feel the island seating is crucial.
2. Do you think this kitchen should have more windows?
3. Would it be odd to have the sink and stove on the same wall?

Any other ideas are welcomed- I want to get this right. Thanks!
