How do others feel about that and also about having the only sink in the small island? I'm attempting to keep the cleaning zone separate from the food prep/cooking zone. Will Logan be able to catch The Gears, save her love life, keep her newspaper column, and get into the writing camp of her dreams all through the use of astrology? Does this make sense?

I'd also ideally like to have some space around the sink(s.) My main conditions are to not move the fridge (don't see how it really works in such a narrow space,) I suspect I would have to make it smaller in order to accommodate the upper cabinets on the far right kitchen wall.

You'd have to use side tables and hassocks instead of the big ottoman, but a Moroccan style long couch all along that wall, leaving just the nook for the desk/pantry, would The goal was to create a more open plan that is conducive to entertaining while blocking the view into the bathroom as much as possible.

Undo Ann I like deco's idea, but to me, it looks like the room isn't wide enough to put the furniture opposite how it was originally.
