Island Kitchen Design

About the island kitchen style

A great open kitchen, the island design allows for multiple workstations and is great for entertaining. The island bench is often seen with L shape designs or in a galley situation and can be a great addition, if space allows, to a single line kitchen.

One of the most versatile kitchen designs, the island allows for a huge range of layouts. Position all appliances along the outer benches (such as in the image below), or place your sink and cooktop on the island and use outer benches as cabinet space and additional prep area. Modern rangehoods are designed to hang independently over your kitchen, many look so great they become a style item in your kitchen rather than just a functional piece.
