Good to read the comments - mostly positive! With regards the sink position - there is a second small sink on the same side of the room as the hob. You can see this on the very last photo. It has a boiling water tap / drinking water tap. This makes filling up water for pans etc for the hob very easy. This achieves a balance between the functional and the aesthetic (not wanting anything on the island).

It's amazing Angus, your family must be thrilled. You have balanced a multitude of different functions and requirements, whilst ensuring it looks stunning. The bar stools are a must, I find people use them first, creating a really sociable space to hangout in. That's one of the key ingredients isn't it, making the kitchen diner a hub all your family want to be in together.

Thanks for your kind comments Emma. Absolutely agree ... the bar stools are used for every occasion, morning to night! It’s definitely the most popular room in the house now.
