to sit or to set?
Do I keep my window seat under my low corner windows or raise them to add counter space? I elicited help last year but we worked on the back of the house first. It's now time to begin the kitchen and I'm hitting the same stumbling block. An architect acquaintance thinks the window seat is a welcome feature but the contractor feels the added counter space in my plans is a must. I'm used to such limited counter space in my current kitchen that my opinion may be skewed in thinking there is adequate space.... I am getting the kohler stages sink (designed the kitchen around it! :o) so I envision spending all of my time at the island. There are 2 of us and I am normally the only one cooking. Note that the house is concrete block so raising the windows will be more of an undertaking (i.e mess and $) than if it were not.... I'm not averse to this if the added expense/work will be worth it in the long run. Any other suggestions/flaw corrections welcome!
