Slide awayIf you’re lucky enough to have a wide island like this one, utilise the space with a huge cabinet. This extra-wide cupboard has been fitted with sliding doors to make it easy to access the inside without doors swinging out into the room.The shelf above prevents the island from looking too blocky, and adds yet another piece of handy storage to the unit.

Put the knife downA common mistake to make when defrosting is to try and prise away the ice with a knife, a flat blade or even a screwdriver. Don’t do it! The chances are you’ll scratch and damage the inside walls of the freezer and cause expensive damage, however careful you think you’re being. Also, ice is, obviously, very slippery and trying to break chunks off with a sharp knife is just asking for trouble. This really is one of those chores where patience is a virtue.

What's on the other side of the island if seats face the large window/Joe's view? Also, what is the backdrop for the island if standing in front of it and looking toward the wall on the stairs? (i.e. how not to make it a wall of cabinets but something eye catching like my column wine refrigerator)
