Large island/banquette seating
I'm planning a large island (12x5) with possible banquette seating at the island. Right now the idea is that there will be 3 bar stools at each end of the island, but along the long side of the island would be a curved cut out in the countertop, and built in curved bench seat. In front of that, a 60" table, and four or so more chairs.
Here are my questions:
1. I am afraid that having so many different seating areas (three, really) will that mess up the usual community feel of the kitchen area?
2. Having one side of the island really reduces the effective usage of said island.
3. Will it be "outdated" quickly?
I'll see if I can't post an inspiration picture of what I'm trying to do.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
