The length of the kitchen is over 20 feet. From the sink wall to the opposite side of the island it's about 9 feet as is the overall length of the island.

I hope this helps.

Yes. It is a structural steel column wrapped and tiled in black penny rounds. The island top was fabricated to fit around it.

Thanks for your interest! -S

what are the white cabinets made of - formica? or what?? - like the white cabinets, but want to know if they are painted (don't like) or any of the other finishes that wear badly. Formica is very tough, interested to know more about formica surfaces for cabinets.

Remarkably enough these cabinets are form Ikea!!! The surface is a type of poly-laminate, yes. There is a reason why laminate is a commercial surface. The material is tough and easy to clean! The white counter top is Silestone.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The team was inspired in part by the family's previous kitchen, which had a huge window overlooking the front yard. "They wanted to keep the window and the overall feeling of their old kitchen, even thought it was in a dated 50-year-old house," Reardon says. "But this new kitchen really does have the memory of the old house in it." Sink: Blanco, Contempra Single Handle faucetLighting: Tech LightingBacksplash: Silestone
5. Is it healthy? If you are trying to keep your home as toxin free as possible, it is important to ask about what is in the product and whether it is harmful. Just because something is labeled "fair trade," for instance, does not necessarily mean it is healthy, so look for specific information about ingredients and finishes before making a purchase. The cabinets in the (truly ecofriendly) home shown here are formaldehyde free.

love the uniqueness; the floors are Mannington's bamboo, the cabinets are formaldehyde free, the sink isn't centered because the window placements are based on the home's exterior, while the interior appliance placement is based on how the home owner uses them - in other words, work with what you have, be open to assymmetry, use what YOU like
