    The more sh!t you have the more sh!t you have to take care of. Pro kitchens are about utility.

    Things I like best in my remodel are self-close drawers, soft close cabinet doors, pot filler, lots of well placed outlets and a functional small appliance "garage". Also like the dispose-all air switch, huge sink and good lighting. Lots of counter space let me and the missus cook together without violence.

    Wish I had a vacuum sealer, an extra dishwasher, another sink, a salamander, a wall double oven and a 48" cook top. A walk-in would be terrific! Also a computer station or flat screen to check out instructional videos and recipes on the fly.

    Induction is easier to clean and gives the same high heat and versatility as gas, at least for me. Someone makes an induction range top that lets you move pots and pans all over and remembers what the temp should be.

    I like your pasta station with the overhang.

    Funny. My dream kitchen would NOT have an island. Currently have one now and I HATE constantly walking around it.

    Boy, you hit on a lot of good ones. I recently rented a place with those self/soft close drawers and cabinets. I really liked them.

    As for the walk-in, it would be cool, but I think I would side with a root cellar that is accessed from (or near) the kitchen. Might as well use the earth to cool instead of paying $70-150 per month on an electric bill for a walk-in. Alternatively, a large walk-in pantry with a second fridge would be another option, but I have a garage that serves as a perfectly good cooler form much of the year

    I am with you on this one BUT the island I have now works pretty good. In the past, I didn't like islands because a lot of them had sinks on them, and the dirty dishes would pile up next to my food prep area and food, and then i would have to transfer the prepped food to my cooktop. The island I have now has my cooktop on it and works for me. I prep on one side and can still reach across to stir things even if I am not in front of the stove. I also don't have to move my food. Everything is prepped and lined up near the top of stove for cooking.

    I bought them in bulk on line and put them in myself at a fraction of what a contractor would charge. IIRC they were called Blum blumotion. A big scratch 'n dent fridge in the garage is our walk-in.

    I wish I had more space physically, def more storage and counter space. Would love a proper hood and another oven, prob a convection unit. Larger refrigeration and freezer would be great. Better cooktop with a chargrill. Larger sink. A second dishwasher. Basically, I'd love a hybrid of a pro and resi kitchen.
