This is the kitchen for the gourmet. I mean, the first thing I think of when I see this kitchen design is food. The U-shaped island is what really brings this space together. You could take this space and make it into a massive buffet at a party, or use it as a counter top for a big dinner wherein many people can be sat to eat. For me, a good kitchen is all about having options, and this one gives us the space for both large dinner parties and food spreads, but also an intimate little family dinner at the dining table in the back.
