So Fenimore and her husband created a cardboard island in their kitchen with precise dimensions to live with it before committing. They tinkered with the details on its size and location. They debated which features were necessary, and which were too much of a splurge or took up too much space.
Lastly, your cooktop needs ventilation. Do you want a range hood mounted in the ceiling and looming over your kitchen island? “There are downdraft vents,” Kirschner says, “but they tend to not work nearly as well” at ventilating your cooking space as overhead ranges do.
Fenimore has a trash can built into her island, with a stainless steel opening in the island’s surface where unwanted items can easily be swept during cooking. It’s a detail that didn’t add much to the cost but makes life exponentially easier.
An oven can also be added as a “secret drawer” to the island, ideal for warming dishes and storing meals for later. Grills can be built into the kitchen island, allowing another area for meal preparation and cooking.
