Old Riomar 1

The "U" shaped island in an open kitchen is one of the most efficient. In this remodel I opened up three small rooms to design the kitchen with a dining room. I found a support column holding up the 2nd floor and it was not in the budget to remove it so I designed around it by adding a 2nd column to the design and creating a cooking center making it part of the design.

I'd use a different surface, and make the u-shaped island smaller, but this 2 level idea is great for the in-home day care- the highchairs wouldn't be able to reach anything on they counter below like the sink or the stove
