This is the last update on my island. Because I wanted the wine boxes and had no other place to put them, I thought they could go on the end of the island. One side w/the wine box and cookbooks for the other side to balance both sides out. However, in doing this, I'm back to my large island top (I'm kinda concerned with what the expense will be w/this large countertop). What do you guys think? Should I keep them on the end or move both to the front side along w/the trash, drawers, microwave, etc.
My island plan. It's just a simple Ikea plan but gives an idea where it was left off at. This is facing the East and has the cookbook boxes (the drawers do nn to be removed still). The other side would have the exact boxes, but for wine. Its closest to the fridge.

Example of what I was going for as to the sides. So basically what it would look like w/something on the sides and four chairs lined up straight.
