I love kitchens that have multiple uses, and this kitchen design idea does not skimp on that offering. With this space you can use the island for prep, or as they have it here you can set it up for dinner. With the dining room on the side it is clear that this kitchen can be used for dinner parties, or if the kids have friends over they can have their own space to sit together at. I love the chairs at the island, and I love the pots and pans hang from the ceiling. This is a dinner party friendly, cook’s kitchen, and I think it rocks.
