1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    How long is the island?

    I'm not certain, I know it's Polyform. I'll have to ask, but it's not particularly large and is fairly narrow.

    Our place has one but I'm not sure I would have ever thought to spec one TBH. I agree they're only moderately useful.

    That is why you have a sink with the pot filler on the side. Just a small one.

    This is a real rich and deep black that has lots of depth to it. No cheese at all honest.

    I don't like black either, but that's just a personal preference. I like marble, steel, concrete, wood, glass - I'm a materials fan. Just not dark materials.

    ^ Agree. I like simple tiles too, particularly for backsplash and wall areas.

    i agree, i forgot tiles. But not tiles meant to perk memories of exotic Australian coral or the sun beeming off crystal clear Fijan waters - white or off white tiles. Unless it's the shower floor, then some colors are ok. But still not dark colors.

    white subway tiles are nice.

    Most people given a choice will take the subway tiles, grey and white marble, little stainless and the door style from my first post. They will not move away from it, at least in the USA

    For some reason they will not take many chances in their kitchen.
