We like the size,shape and utility of the island, in that draws on the kitchen materials.
I like the concept of recycling an the design really attracted me. The price maybe less so!
The combination of good light, traditional painted kitchen units and the functionality. The wood floor softens it nicely.
Feels more contemporary, especially with the small back splash tile going up the wall. Perhaps a little 'cool' but that can be changed with warmer tones.
