In the 18th century, kitchens often had a simple dry sink, a rectangular cabinet used to wash dishes before indoor plumbing, and a central worktable. Worktables began as fairly plain objects standing on open legs, and were used to knead dough, prepare foods, and store cooking accessories. Because kitchens were not family spaces at the time, worktables really weren’t used for sit-down meals.
If you are worried about running into corners, then work a countertop with rounded edges into your kitchen island plans, and if you are looking to save a bit of space, a circular or oval-shaped kitchen island could be the right direction. There are endless kitchen island designs available; to decide on the design you should think about what you are going to use your island for the most. Since they take up extra floor space, make sure it’s practical for you and works with your kitchen.
The kitchen is the heart of the home in this urban self build — it even features a swing and leads to a small courtyard garden. A triangular kitchen island makes efficient use of the space, while creating a divide between the areas for cooking and relaxing. Revolutionising the way the family interacts with their listed barn, this ultra-modern extension features a pitted Amazonian granite worktop that contrasts with the vast amounts of natural light.
