Which way should beverage fridge open?

December 2, 2019

We are installing an under counter beverage fridge at the end of our island. I am wondering whether it should hinge on the right (opening on left toward the breakfast nook and the end of the island) or left (opening on the right toward the sink).

i was leaning toward hinging on left and opening toward the sink because it seems easy enough to access from either direction and still keeps things accessible to the cook while keeping kids out of the main cooking area (stove is on the back wall directly opposite the sink). My husband was thinking it should open toward the breakfast nook. Now I am not sure which way to go... any thoughts?
