A Great Room Kitchen

One of the things that really stood out at the 2015 Southern Living Idea House was the combination kitchen with eat-at island and full sized dining area.  I know this isn't a new concept but what struck me was that the dining area really felt like a full-sized dining room versus just a space for a table. Since there was no formal dining room in the house, this space does double-duty for casual gatherings and more formal dinners.

The kitchen had a wall of windows that made the space feel even more expansive.  The cooktop was in front of the windows - guess that would work best for a neat cook.  (I have visions of bubbling spaghetti sauce spattering)

The dining room also has a tv for mixed in with art.

I said the same thing when I saw the stove by the windows. :)

I am absolutely baffled by the gas cooktop no hood and under windows. Looks unsafe to me! Just shows you what looks good doesn't always work good.

I don't know - I would think cleaning up windows would be as easy as cleaning up a more traditional backsplash. Am I missing something? And I would LOVE to look out a window while cooking, especially something that needs constant monitoring.
