If anyone is interested on another take on the U-Kitchen topic, We just did a blog on it this week. You can find it here.

I have designed a u shaped kitchen for my new renovation. I would like to use Ceaserstones Empira White (marble look) for my bench and spashback. Is it a problem with the direction of the marble vain obviously changing on the middle wall.

Our kitchen is U shaped, as that is all that filled the space for it. It has considerable advantages but also some drawbacks, mainly the size corner cupboards require and the fact that the sides were not long enough (after the corner cupboard was installed) for a full size dishwasher. Within its limitations, it does work well, with plenty of bench space for prep, a view from the window above the sink (herb garden) and a half island bench where I spread out for baking and dishing up. I would have liked a fraction more space, but it's a townhouse so no possibility of extension or bumpout.
