I would do off centre so that the rest of the space can be used for something, meal prep, eating etc.

Any chance you can get the island widened? That width doesn’t allow you a lot of options.

How come the sink can’t fit on the back bench top?

We have a near 3m long Kitchen island we just did (as part of house extension/rebuild). Our sink is a small 45cm wide single sink under mount without draining tray. It is 60cm in from the edge as we have the dishwasher (at edge of island) then sink.

So the pictures of the display have it off centre?  Wouldn’t you just go with that then?
And you may plan to have people sitting at the dining table but isn’t the whole point of building from scratch to allow as many options as possible? So by having it more down one end you then have options of it being another gathering zone. Having set ideas about how you’ll use a space before it’s built seems limiting to me.

Off centre in line with stove looks fine and gives you a clear space on the island, so I would copy the show room/ house layout.

Righto, thanks all! I’m 90% sure I’ll go with an inmount sink without drainer, depending on how much that upgrade costs and leave it off centre.

To those asking if the island can be widened or if the sink can go on the bench behind, yes it can. But the sink and stove top will then be pushed into corners to allow set room either side. The island can be widened but I’m almost too scared to think of the cost for that. I’m trying to hold back on as many changes as I can do I still have the $ to spend on changing the bench tops and cabinetry profiles. 😂🙄

We have an inmount sink and no draining board, which is slightly closer to the wall end than the open end. I measured and the tap is about 15 cm closer, but it makes a huge difference to the workable space on the more open end - I would have said the difference was much bigger.
