  3. How to plan a kitchen island

It’s on the wish list of most new kitchens, and for good reason. A cleverly designed island can be a hub for cooking, dining and entertaining, as well as providing invaluable storage and worktop space.

A good designer will ensure the kitchen is designed to work perfectly with an island, considering what it will be used for and the amount of traffic in the room; such as busy Mums and the number of children charging through.

The space around the island is an important consideration, especially when doors and drawers are open.

A well designed island can accommodate the main cooking area, with seamless induction hobs and hidden extractors not compromising the style. Wine coolers and dishwashers can also be incorporated.

Islands are also great areas for dining, integrating a breakfast bar will add a sociable aspect to your kitchen and be the centrepiece of the room. It also gives the option to use of a variety of materials. Oak topped breakfast bars will add warmth, whereas quartz and granite are great for food prep. Using the same colour throughout the kitchen will create a seamless extension to the units, but choosing a contrasting colour or texture on the island can create a stunning focal point.
