Where should I place a main sink in a double island kitchen?

Recommended Posts

We are in final planning stages of our house and my wife and I are having difficulty deciding where to position the main and secondary sink in our double island kitchen. 

Option 1: position the main island closest to the cooktop (current design). This leaves the second island clutter free for guests and family to gather. Also, it’s a quick access to the sink when you need to drop dirty skillets and pots. 
On the other hand, it can create a bottle neck when one person is cooking and the other is washing dishes. Also, opening the dishwasher (we might have 2), will severely limit the space there. 

Option 2: place the secondary (small) sink closest to cooktop. This provides room for prepping and cooking. Place main sink in the outer island, which frees up space for 2 people to work easily together. But then again, that limits counter space for family and guests to sit there and may be less esthetically pleasing. 

Any advice will be welcomed!

If it was me, I would choose option 2. Eventho both of the sink are place on different island or places, but I think it is quite strategic and useful. So people don't get to bump into each other
which makes more space to walk around and another plus point is there are more space to prepared food beside the sink which is what makes the whole thing more conveniently.
