Islands Defined: Multifunctional Service with a Purpose

The kitchen island is a relative of the big farm worktable.  Today’s island is often more than a table: it’s a mini-kitchen with cabinets below, a pot rack above, seating area and an embedded cook-top, or sink, for prep efficiency.  Such designs, make for a delightful conversational experience, for both the cook, and their guests.

Defining Space

This island has a dual purpose: it defines space, separating the kitchen from the adjoining area and provides an adequate serving & storage solution to accommodate daily and entertaining demands.

Although, this island doesn’t accommodate seating, the rich cabinetry provides storage for cookware & serving pieces.  It also serves as a multifunctional prep solution; ideal for dual cook house-holds.

A Gathering Place

An extra-large island, centered in the middle of the kitchen, provides a wide expanse of serving area and dining space, while also allowing the cook to remain engaged with eager guest.

Multi-Functional

Butcher block, prep sink, additional storage, and counter space makes this the ultimate multifunctional island.  In the middle of the island, the over-hang maximizes use and minimizes space, by design.  The cook is invited to sit & read a recipe or sip a cup of tea; or an on-looker can enjoy conversation with the cook.
