Houzz is the new way to design your home.
I wonder if this would be a good use of the space in front of the window in Waschküche . . . & give me a space for my laptop downstairs . . .
I'm really tempted by this floating shelf unit above the island . . .
Like the open shelving for canned goods
I like the special, wide/flat shelves for bakeware at the bottom
Ah-ha! An island with the seating area lower than the counter/workspace height.
