A few things are certain in the dream kitchen.One of those is an over sized, totally tricked-out island. An eating bar will provide a spot for quick meals while keeping your actual island counter top open for food prep. If storage isn't an issue, design an island with a counter top overhang to house your barstools. Even in the busiest area of your kitchen, make room for attractive accessories that complement your counters. Vases of flowers or bowls of bright, shiny containers will add warmth and interesting textures to the hard surfaces of your counter tops. Your kitchen should be an enjoyable place to work and to socialize. Organize and accessorize your counter top work spaces for maximum beauty as well as functionality.
