How to make use of a fireplace in a kitchen!

2 months ago

We're turning an old lounge into a kitchen, which has this lovely brick fireplace as a feature which we would like to keep & include.
I would appreciate any comments on how to make this fit in and look 'right'! We are pretty decided on using the gaps either side for ovens & cupboards (still open to suggestions however!) But it's the actual fireplace itself we need some ideas on! We've thought about just simply turning it into a cupboard but that seems a bit of a shame, we've also thought about bringing a peice of worktop jutting from it to create a island/bar that can be sat up to...but would appreciate comments & further ideas. The measurements are as below:
The fireplace:
Depth:50cm (it has a inner depth of 39cm and then pillars which make it up to 50cm)
The width either side of the fireplace is 103cm to the left & 108cm to the right, with a depth of 48cm & a height of 209cm- just incase anyone has further ideas on this part of the feature too!
Would appreciate any thoughts & ideas....thank you :)
