I plan to have my hob in the island with the ovens housed in a bank of tall units directly behind the hob, what would you say is the ideal floor space/distance between the island and ovens? I do intend to get the Neff slide & hide oven doors.

Fiona - we're designing our kitchen at the moment, and have been advised to leave at least 90cm between units, and more if you need to open a door constantly, which sounds like your case with your oven door opposite the hob.
