Oversized islands may be everywhere these days, but they didn’t exist in early kitchens. Still, the concept of a separate workspace started showing up as early as the 18th century, which means it is possible to design an island for today's needs while hewing to historical examples.
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.
You can even add suspended storage above the island, in the form of a hanging rack, so you don’t waste any of that ceiling space – this is the perfect place to hang your pots and pans and free up even more cupboard and drawer space in your kitchen. Which is great if you have a smaller kitchen and are struggling to fit in an island without moving or losing kitchen cabinets.
