The window is really at the same height as the lower cabinets? That's a shame.

You couldn't do something more creative with the outlet? I think a wider pantry would be a win.

Could you possibly recess the outlet into the right-side pantry and pass code? Then you could do a wider left pantry and line up everything else with the left edge of the window.

Why not install cabinets above the window, add nice SS or copper vent hood. Going by the sketch it does not look like the window goes to the ceiling.

If that is not an option, the option with the cleaner lines and overall better look in my opinion would be option # 1.

Move the window to center................................

Answer, option 2. The cabinet and stove should line up with each other.

Edit, rereading, I think it's option 1 picture 2

Is there enough space to put a thin counter/cabinet to the left of the stove? Maybe a thin lower cabinet to hold trays, etc. This would center the hood in option 2, allow you to buy a wider hood and provide some counter space for cooking utensils.

More storage space is always better. Since things don't lay out ell either way, use a 36" wide cabinet and a 36" wide hood to help disguise it. It might even look OK with a 39 upper and a 36 hood if there is room.

Mike.

Edit - after reading Tireless. Code around here calls for at least 3" space between the stove and pantry. That means shrinking something under the window by 3" and adding a 3" filler left of the stove with a strip of counter. Yes it is dumb but dems de rules. My above recommendations still stand and I would prefer the 39 cabinet / 36 hood with the stove moved other.

Put a 3" or 6" wide pullout spice rack/can storage left of the stove. Is that a 21" stove? where's the sink?

I don't blame them, I wouldn't want it either.

Is that a pantry on the right of the window?

Why not install the outlets on the side of the cabinet on the right, build the left side cabinet to center the hood and call it a day? The stove is begging for a small counter on the left. The stove next to the pantry looks like something I would find in an apartment.

30" stove and 30" cabinet. Must match up to be pleasing to the eye.

Absolutely correct! Just plain bad design (function) to place a stove against a wall like that. Sure, it's done, but lotsa things are "done" that shouldn't be.

Send me an accurate floor plan, I'll critique it. I do this for a living.

Shelf across tops of uppers to tie design together if no soffit. Then shelf above window casing to span between uppers to give more storage space. Use plan b wider upper.

Garett, take a look at this guy's cabinet design program. It's cheap and he even offers a free trial. It seems from reading your posts you are the kind of builder this was made for. It will model anything you can imagine when you learn it and will do 3D and export if you want. I do 5 or 6 full custom kitchens a year and have been using this program for the last few years.

http://www.cabinetplanner.com/download.html

You seem to like to build things your way (much like myself) and not necessarily to standard sizes. I was amazed at what I could do when I got used to the program. It is a bit cumbersome but if you only do a few projects with it every year it is a great tool. I have a local shop that builds any cabinet I draw regardless of size. And no fillers!

I have installed outlets in pantry cabinets with no issues. Here any island cabinet needs then too. The wire needs to run in conduit for protection. The flexible pvc works well.

Mike.

Good point. With out a small counter to the left you run into the problem of having no space for a handle from a pot or pan.
