How Often Does Someone SIT at your island
I got to thinking about how infrequently anyone actually sat at our island in our previous kitchen and it was RARE.
The layout we're having is similar enough that makes me wonder if we wouldn't be better off just putting cabinets all the way around. Our island will be 4' x 10' with the seating in question to go on the 10' side.
This is our retirement home, so subtract any usage of children doing homework etc. and consider only guests using it. Do your guests gravitate to the chairs up close in the kitchen or do they prefer sitting in soft family room chairs and sofas?
