I finally have the kitchen pretty much the way I want it so now I can show you a few more photos.
It is a fairly simple layout with the stove and refrigerator along the back wall and plenty of bench space on either side of the stove. There are good-sized drawers for storage.
The island bench includes a large sink. There are also cupboards and drawers below the bench.
The bench has an overhang suitable for a breakfast bar, however, I am yet to decide whether to utilise this feature as the dining table is a mere couple of steps away. At the moment I have some of the bulk buckets stored under here whilst I work out the best spot for them.
The butlers pantry is adjacent to the kitchen and includes a sink and dishwasher as well as the microwave, open shelving, bench space and cupboards.
We have future plans to extend the size of the pantry but that is a story for another day.
