This kitchen is almost a combination of kitchen and dining area. Usually, the island is taller and is meant more as more of a nook than anything more, but in this cool design we have an island that can also be used for a space to have a sit down dinner. The dark wood paneling around the kitchen also makes this a very rich space to be in. I can almost smell the rich scent of wood. It looks like the island is also a space for cooking, which makes it good for prep, eating and cooking. To me that is a very smart design tactic.
