The outside kitchen wall will have a window so I thought the sink should go there and the dishwasher would be right next to the sink.
I was thinking about a flat range/oven combination for the island, perhaps putting the microwave built into the island as well. Would a cooktop, oven and microwave separately cost more money? We can use my existing microwave to save costs.
I don't have a lot of wall cabinets, so I won't have enough room to build the oven and microwave into the wall. My kitchen is open to the family room so the island will not have any hanging cabinets above it.
From an Architecture standpoint, what's best suited for the island? Do they make flattop ranges with the ovens? All the ones I see either have the knobs in the front or back of the range and stick up.
Any tips would be appreciated.
