I am going to remodel my kitchen. I have an island in the middle of it and the back side of the island is going to open up to the living room. There is a stove in the island and that is where it has to stay. So my question is what to do with the island. Should it just be an island with a stove and that is it. Or can there be seating at the same level as the stove or does it have to bump up to a bar top and then have seating there. or any other ideas. THANKS!!!
