To have an island or not

OK, I'm having a decorating "situation". I can't decide if I want an island or not. Our houseplan has an island with a sink and dishwasher but I really don't know if I want it. Of course my husband and the architect think it is a must but I'm not so sure. I have an old farmhouse table that I would use instead. Tell me what you think.

Thanks for your comments! As far as the island I think you need to think about how you use your kitchen you want alot of workspace.. do you entertain and could use it to serve off of...and lastly what look are you going for...more relaxed or a traditional layout- I am getting ready to post on kitchen actually and will have some great pics- thanks for stopping by and welcome to blogland!

I feel for you. When we decided to renovate our kitchen I faced the same decision. I decided to go with the island. I have a ton of storage and extra counter top space. (But that is not to say that I would not have been just as happy with my farmhouse table.) I will post some pictures of my kitchen today as well. I hope we can give you some inspiration.

Thank you for the comments on my blog. I am very new at this.:) By the way, the Carolyne Roehm book is lovely. She has another one titled "A Passion for Flowers" If you love to garden, you will love this book.
