What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Long island extensionThis is a great option if you have a long room, or if the dimensions of your room don’t allow enough space for stools to be pulled out at the back of the island without obstructing a pathway. Extend the benchtop to the desired length and support it underneath with legs that match the style of your kitchen. With no cabinets underneath, diners can comfortably sit on both sides of extension.See another selection of eat-in kitchens
6. Visualise your new kitchen layout Sit in the space and try to see how the layout will work and flow through surrounding areas, particularly in an open-plan home. Will you be able to move easily from the dining and living areas into the kitchen without too many obstacles? Will you be able to grab a cool drink from the fridge without walking through the work zones of the kitchen and getting under the cook’s feet?If you have any questions, concerns or other ideas, don’t be afraid to discuss them with your designer, no matter how trivial you think it may be. It’s important that you get the kitchen that works best for you and your family. Sometimes your designer may presume you know certain things (although a designer should never presume anything!). Don’t be afraid to tell your designer you are not familiar with how the whole process works and that you would like them to carefully discuss every aspect with you.
