These islands often features expansive countertops, with abundance space available for in-kitchen dining, courtesy of a set of conveniently placed bar stools. As the sizes grew, the feature sets expanded.
You’re more likely than not to see an island with a built-in secondary or even primary kitchen sink, adding utility and novelty by placing a central function of this room in a fresh place. The countertop on an island offers a more open space than those backed against a backsplash or shaded beneath cabinetry.
By adding a dedicated induction downdraft cooktop cooking surface to the island, its usefulness is expanded greatly. Now food can be prepared in a wide open space and moved into place for serving without effort.
Even more than this, ventilation is improved, as well as lighting, in most cases. With a stove built into your kitchen island, the cooking food can simply be seen better!
The islands themselves appear in a wide array of styles and sizes, clad in anything from rustic wood to ultra-modern sleek stainless steel. Countertops can be found in rich wood, steel, quartz, granite, and of course marble.
One of the best aspects of having a functional island with a built-in stove, is that it makes the kitchen a more social and open space. You can be busy cooking without having your back turned to family and friends!
