Island or table?
I have decided on a kitchen open to a dining and seating area (kind of a hearth room style) but not a great room...separate living/dining area.
The L-shaped kitchen could use an island or large work table to direct traffic to the other areas and keep them out of my work space...and provide room for extra prep/baking, etc.
While an island provides lots of storage, I also like the idea of a big work table that can be moved, when necessary. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Oh, it's an old farmhouse kitchen, with a woodstove planned for one corner, near a corner banquette with round table and two chairs. Also hoping to open up the old side porch and make room for a settee and a few chairs. I would love to have a space for friends/relatives to visit in the kitchen, without having the noise of the TV/video games competing with the conversation :)
