The first thing I think of when I look at this kitchen remodel idea is that that island would be perfect for drinks. I can easily imagine having friends over for appetizers and drinks while sitting at that island chatting. It could also serve as a great breakfast nook as well. The chairs are great as well. I like kitchens that give you the potential for multiple levels of functionality. This space could also be great for the family, but instead of the breakfast nook a dining room table might be more appropriate. I also love the spread of colors that have been used here.
