The best thing about our new kitchen (galley style) is the island bench with no sink or stove on it! Our sink, stove, fridge are in a line along the wall ... I have rebelled against the work triangle!!! The mess stays on one side, and family/ guests hover around the island which is where the prepared food goes. Guests put their food offerings there, and why would anyone want a sink of dirty dishes near the served food? Under the bench, on the outer side with the bar stools, is a glasses cabinet so guests can help themselves to drinks. Also, the bench is used for cutting fabric, wrapping presents and so on. A walk in pantry is tucked in opposite the fridge.

I like many features thank you, it has confirmed i am on the right track with my awkward kitchen design. Fridge access through but also around the cooking area, pantry with drawers, tucked away second sink wash up area (with a window view), stools that hide under the bench when not in use, garbage station plus we’ve added electric openings, bar and drinks area nearby.
