Happy Birthday to my Dad!!!! Yes, his birthday was the day after our wedding...probably his best birthday present was giving me away. Ha! We like to joke about that. He can tell you how many steps to the alter it was. ;)
Well after a big poll on the facebook group moms in charge, I think we've pretty much decided to go with the sink in our island versus on the outside wall looking toward the backyard. I know a house is all about how you and your family live so I guess it's to each their own.
When I lived at the Avenue, the sink was in my island and I loved it. I always stood there and faced out to my living area or to the people sitting at the bar in front of me. I think it's the right option for us.
So our next big debate is an uninterrupted island like this....
or a raised bar like this.
I know the uninterrupted island is very "in" right now. I get it, it's gorgeous. It really is. But there is something about sitting up at a bar in the kitchen or standing at it and leaning over that I love. I imagine Molly Anne in 6 years sitting up there doing her homework. Our island will be about 9' wide and 6' deep so it would look similar to the picture above if we went with the bar height counter.
Another reason people like the bar height is to hide dishes at the sink. We don't ever really have dishes piled up unless we are hosting a party but they can fit in the sink as well because we are going to do a farmhouse sink like the above.
I don't know. Tell me your thoughts. I'm still not married to either idea yet but we are leaning towards the bar height versus the uninterrupted.
