You could add a utility line under the floor—a gas fitter’s or electrician's help should be sought for a project like this. From ranges, to built-in grills to warming trays, there are a large number of hot or warm appliances that can be installed in a kitchen island.
Some of Fenimore’s favorite elements are deep, pull-out drawers for pots and pans, and drawers with mechanisms that lift a mixer or other small appliance up and out for easy use. Also: drawers designed to hold containers of spices, and deep drawers holding metal containers for serving utensils.
From preparing meals to stopping into the kitchen for a quick cup of coffee, islands provide an additional area for cooking and organization. This space can also be utilized for warming food, cleaning dishes or a place to enjoy a small bite.
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.
