What Houzz contributors are saying:
3. Baking StationThis kitchen’s island is 13 feet, 2 inches long and 4 feet wide, with most of the length — 10 feet, 2 inches — made of a white oak counter. The remaining 3 feet of the island is a baking station with a Carrara marble top. One of the owners of this home in Litchfield, Connecticut, loves to bake. The marble stone’s thermal properties help keep dough cool so that it is easier to handle.

4. Location: Bridgeport, ConnecticutWhy we love it: There is so much to love about a farmhouse kitchen that feels like it gets a lot of use, as this kitchen does with its multiple prep areas, overflowing pot rack and utensil crock and packed-to-the-brim bookcase.
Range hood: The range hood is a custom piece, built out in wood by Revolutionary Restoration and Building. Island: The heart of the kitchen is the extra-large island, the space’s functional workhorse. At 13 feet 2 inches long and 4 feet wide, the island is quite large. The bulk of the length — 10 feet 2 inches — features a white oak counter that adds warmth to the room thanks to the wood tones. Shelving on the back side of the island creates a storage place for the homeowners’ cookbook collection.Baking station: The remaining 3 feet of the island features a baking station with a Carrara marble top, a special perk for one of the owners who is an avid baker. The marble stone’s thermal properties help keep dough chilled, making it easier to handle. How to Get Your Range Hood Right | Shop for kitchen sinks and fixtures
