We chose to keep our kitchen separate- but opened up an old hatch to dining- we sit around massive island. All cooking in my 'mum' zone. Suits us!

Absolutely agree that families come in all shapes and sizes, and everyone is unique in the way that they want to use their kitchen. LWK Kitchens is right - a good kitchen designer will know the right questions to ask so they can create a tailored design specific to that household. Design consultations are invaluable, but sometimes people are shy about talking to a designer, particularly if they feel their ideas aren't fully formed yet. We would say don't let that put you off - a good, professional kitchen designer should be able to work with your initial ideas and help form a more 'tangible' design. Here's how to prepare for a design consultation if you're unsure.

Cheddarmum, I love your island. Can you sit 5 around it? I'd love to know the dimensions if you have a minute?
