Create the ultimate live-in kitchen
Rethink your kitchen layout
Ditch the preconceptions of kitchen planning. Usually the sink is under the window as we have a romantic idea of doing the washing up while looking out at a white picket fence, but if you do most of your cooking at night, what's the point of a window? If you like to cook while watching TV or chatting to friends, why not fit an island unit with a sink and bar stools for friends.
Speak to your kitchen designer about an island unit or invest in a butcher's block, Countrytrolleys.co.uk has a great selection.
