West Coast Hamptons
The kitchen, breakfast room and family room are all open to one another. The kitchen has a large twelve foot island topped with Calacatta marble and features a roll-out kneading table, and room to seat the whole family. The sunlight breakfast room opens onto the patio which has a built-in barbeque, and both bar top seating and a built in bench for outdoor dining. The large family room features a cozy fireplace, TV media, and a large built-in bookcase. The adjoining craft room is separated by a set of pocket french doors; where the kids can be visible from the family room as they do their homework.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
What about putting both types together? Absolutely! Here is an example of a kitchen that makes good use of the space by incorporating a wheeled countertop for kneading dough into the main island. You can always be creative with the shape, look and function of your island, as long as your space can accommodate it and it helps in the work flow of your kitchen.TELL USWhich type of island did you choose for your kitchen?

8. Instant bake-offFor those who love whipping up cupcakes and fresh bread, this is a nifty addition to the island counter. The wheeled baking station tucks seamlessly under the countertop, and marble is used on both surfaces. At a lower height, it’s also ideal for kids learning how to cook, as well as two cooks putting together a feast. The bespoke unit is cleverly designed so the wide drawers fit perfectly.Kitchen Design: Baking Stations Make Cooking More Fun
