how about an over-the-range microwave instead of a hood? saves counterspace and does what a hood does and more.

Also, just curious why the cabinet in the corner to the right of the window is cut at a 45? From the first diagram where you can't see that, I was thinking dishwasher opening...

Nice sketch, I may look into that program for myself!

The angle cut is my solution to a problem - our laundryroom door takes up almost that entire wall, leaving 13" on the left and 18" on the right of it. I thought about making the doorway smaller but that would limit access to the washer/dryer.
So it's angled cut to accomodate the needed wide-laundryroom access - and it's the ideal size for an undercounter trashcan, which will be nice to have.

At first I wasn't going to put the counter there at all but thought that having some counter would still be very useful. If the trashcan is in a cabinet then I can use that countertop area for the microwave, etc.

I've also had to offset the base cabinet area (2' deep) of the island by 6" to allow for the laundry door access, as well.

I, actually, wanted to buy a stackin washer/dryer but that bumped the cost of the remodeling up too much - I have to, also, do the bathroom. If I could have afforded a washer/dryer then I could put a traditional door on the laundry closet rather than the current setup.
So - if I keep that angled area simple I can remove the angled corner and flush it straight to the wall if/when I can redo the laundryroom door area.

I somewhat thought about an overhead microwave but I consider them dangerous - the height required for them is just a bit uncomfortable for me to reach and it would tempt my kids to climb.
At this present moment in time I am making cabinets for the kitchen - just in case you wanted to know what I'm doing when I'm not around.
