Good Morning DBP. Hope all is well. I was wondering if you can guide me. We are doing our kitchen over and I’m just confused as to where to place the island. Two kitchen people say one way one says the other. If I sent you my floor plan and a picture of the two designs can you give me your honest opinion. I’m so nervous to make the wrong decision as it’s a lot of money.
DBP: Yes, send us floor plan and pix. We will be glad to offer suggestions and advice!
Homeowner: Hi DBP Team, I totally appreciate you taking a quick look for me. Below is my floor plan as well as pictures of my current kitchen. I am confused whether I should go with the Island facing the family room or facing the kitchen table area. It’s an odd layout. I really wanted an updated look and most contractors or telling me to go with an rectangular island. I currently have a U-shape very small. So, I have three plans. Island facing living room, island facing kitchen table area or L shape. Can you please give me your honest opinion.
