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.
There’s just one problem with this reasoning and that’s the economic principle called the law of diminishing returns. Diminishing returns is the concept where no matter how good something is, at some point the benefits begin to diminish. In the case of kitchens, I think diminishing returns takes hold after 1 kitchen island.
This could also be your sink or the dishwasher – as most people use a modern kitchen island to add more counter space. Moving the stove to your island, coupled with a kitchen island with seating, can help make meal preparation a more social affair – especially if you are one for dinner parties and you don’t like ignoring your guests – this will be perfect for you.
