It sounds lovely — having your stovetop in the island, so you can chat with someone seated there while you’re cooking. But things splatter, Kirschner points out. And tearing up the floor to add power and gas lines can be expensive if your kitchen doesn’t already have these utilities in the middle of the floor.
But our three designers say you can also think of your island like a piece of furniture that is coordinated with the rest of the room but a little different. If you want the island to be the kitchen’s focal point, Kirschner says, get creative.
Whenever you need to cut veggies, stack plates or serve guests, you can wheel out the mobile kitchen island and put it to work. Once finished with your preparations, you can store away the cart to increase space. The island can double as a small table through the simple addition of bar stools.
“A lot of people underestimate storage needs,” Fenimore says, so really think about how you cook and what you use. Kirschner also suggests considering what you might want to store that isn’t technically a “kitchen” item. Her island includes drawers for her children’s art supplies, because the island is where they do arts.
