I notice most islands have hot plates or sink away from the hot plates, neither idea appeals to me. The island is a secondary table with storage beneath. Turning with hot pots to a sink only works where there is no space for two in the kitchen, I prefer to have the hot plates on the same bench top as the sink so hot things are not being spun over the kitchen. Also the oven needs to be close to the bench for placing hot dishes on the bench. Now I have arthritis in my hands it’s good to have places to put things down rather than rely on what strength I have left. The hot plates need space either side for things like chopping board, small food prep, spoons etc. But colour wise number 1, was the best choice though the blue was stunning and i liked the colour repeated in small spots in other rooms. The pick position was the kitchen almost in the back yard, forgotten the numbers. You would know them.

Kazaa- have YOUR kitchen exactly as you want it to suit YOUR medical condition. Obviously not everyone has the same wants/needs.


Number 1 is a peninsula

Thank you ... my next kitchen will be how I want it, I won’t listen to the “ you can’t have that” . The kitchen was redone only a few years back and so many things I would change. Next one will have no cupboards, only drawers, apart from cutlery, the peninsular design in the house of no 10.
Is there a storage that can take over a corner pantry? Something like a rotation shelves so the person doesn’t have to reach over to things on the back of the shelf. This is a concern because it’s what I have now, next one even food will be in drawers. Top shelves are useless because I need a stool to reach them.
If only a company would train their men to listen to why the customer wants whatever. The last guy did good work, but could not let go of cupboards. Only cupboard I need is for the bin.
