Incorporating sinks or stovetops into the surface of the island is one way to spread the workflow throughout the kitchen. Installation can be tricky, so pay attention to details like ventilation and plumbing. This will require running downward (most common in islands) or overhead venting (which can be expensive), and allocating extra space to in-cabinet pipes.
In addition to creating more counter space, an island is also a way to add more storage and avoid kitchen clutter by using drawers, cupboards and shelves. This is beneficial especially if appliances take up a lot of cabinet room, or if you’re looking for a unique way to showcase certain items by using open shelving. Store dishes and pots within reach or keep less frequently used appliances out of the way. Another option is to use open shelving to display cookbooks or other items.
A practical eating counter island needs open shelving where knees can tuck or an overhang on at least one side for low-profile, backless bar stool to tuck in.
What makes Linon’s Bamboo Work Island ($215) unique is its inlaid-granite top. Granite is low maintenance, modern and ideal for bakers who need a cool surface area to work on. A variety of storage options — drawer, basket, shelf, wine rack and towel hooks — offer places for everything a cook needs on hand, and rubber casters let you roll it wherever you need it the most.
