Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Concepts I like - symmetry of boxed island seating on long run on dining table side, island seating on long run but not full length to allow for more storage? Raised slap concept. Overlaid slab concept. Underlaid slab concept. Any of these ideas on sort end instead of long to allow more storage? Don't know difference in costs of various options. Should consider location of island chairs. Ideal chair positioning? Consideration....TV positioning? Back to garden view? Side placement to allow view of whole room? Impact on cabinet usage/placement?
inserted box frame/foot rest might add too much cost v more straightforward design
would wood stain over time from glasses/mugs?
deep so lots of seating/cooking space
like undermounted look of this.
like box chunky look of top and sides but more expensive?
less chunky but like
