Help with kitchen island
We just opened our kitchen to the dining room (you can see one dining room chair in this pic) and want to add a kitchen island with seating. We are not sure if we should do a 5' x 4' island with seating along the door/refrigerator side of the kitchen or if we should do a smaller island with seating backing up to the dining room table. Walking space is not an issue in either scenario, we are just trying to figure out which would look best in our kitchen. Is it okay to have your chairs back up to the fridge/main walking area; or best to have them backing up to the dining room table (people sitting at the island will have their backs to those at the table)?
