We are currently at plaster stage when I have realised that our kitchen looks out of proprotion to the large living/dining. The kitchen is narrow with only 1m between bench with an over to the other bench- not very practical 🤦🏼♀️
I’m therefore looking to redesign this with minimal impact of cost given we are already at plaster stage.
I have the two possible designs in mind.
Any feedback or alternate ideas would be great.
1) island bench rotated facing dining area
2) create L shape bench

Option 1 seems most practical than the L shape - assuming it will be rotated so that there is a direct access from dining to pantry. It offers a nice large casual eating spot. The L shape means a long walk thru the kitchen to the pantry.

Depends on what you are planning to mainly use your bench for.
From what I see, you are quite alright even without bench at all, you have enough cutting space right between sink and oven.
If you are planning to use it as a small bar area for parties or informal eating area, option 2 looks so much better (but limits access to your kitchen to only one side - it is not a problem then go for it (but where would your fridge go in that case?). Alternatively, just place a bench higher and leave 1200 mm spacing between your fridge and the bench end.

option 2 allows people to get into the WIP without disrupting the work area (working triangle) whilst creating more bench space. Though if you went option 1 you should bring your island of the wall to create a walkway to the WIP, especially if the fridge is in there.
