Traffic Zones

A long but narrow island also features wine storage, which is neatly tucked into the end near the prep sink, creating a bar zone for entertaining. The raised soapstone countertop can be used as a breakfast bar or staging area, all while concealing the chef's lower workstation, which includes a cooktop.

Point out to your customers that while a long island will be very functional, it will also require walking around every time they want to cross the room.
