If space allows, the double island is the most efficient layout for a kitchen. It allows for work and traffic flow to be separated. Each area can have its own zone: prep, clean up, snack and seating/conversation. Everything in its place and room for work and play. Sounds pretty perfect, right?

I also happen to like the visual line they create. Perfectly punctuated by a big hood, or sink with large window at the end. Though the curvy island (#3) is pretty neat too!
Thanks for all your well wishes on the auction! It was amazing and I am now addicted. I picked up quite a few things. I’ll try to share later in the day tomorrow 🙂
