And do you want one level or two? Burnham loves the clean lines of one level surface. But Kirschner sometimes designs an island with two levels — one at counter height for cooking prep and a lower level at table height, so you can sit in chairs rather than bar stools.
In the end, that island “has become the literal hub in our home for socializing,” Fenimore says. We’ve asked Fenimore, founder of the design firm Studio Ten25, and two other interior designers — Los Angeles-based Betsy Burnham and New York-based Jenny Kirschner — for their thoughts on great kitchen-island design and trends.
Interior designer Abbe Fenimore knew that adding a kitchen island was one of the most important decisions she’d make in remodeling her 1940s-era home in Dallas. A well-designed kitchen island can offer storage space, a work surface, comfortable seating — even a cooktop or spare sink.
