Designing our new kitchen

So as we go about designing our new kitchen, we have one small but nagging question yet to resolve.

As you will have seen from the plans, we have an island in the kitchen. The question is, do we put a raised shelf on the side of the island facing the dining room or not (see examples below)? If we do, then cooking clutter in the kitchen could be hidden from view during dinner, but if we don't, we get the widest possible work surface, which could be great for tasks such as rolling out dough.

What do you think?

  1. I think it depends on what's going to bother you the most: Not having a large space to roll dough (assuming it's something you do often) or seeing the mess on the counter from the dining area. Both option will look nice, but you'll love your kitchen even more if it's functional :)
