This example of Kitchen Island Design was prepared for my client in Wimbledon, SW London.

My client wanted an Island to be centrally mounted in his studio flat, specifically to provide a “SE Asian” cooking station.

  • A Neff Built under “Pyrolitic Self Cleaning” Single Oven with a “Slide and Hide Door”
  • Self Vented Induction Hob
  • Gas Fired Wok Burner
  • Tepan Yaki (flat griddle Hob
  • Small Prep Sink

Kitchen Island … Tips

When looking to include a Kitchen Island in your design its worth considering the following …

  • Size – This is very important … nothing looks worse than a Kitchen Island that is too big for the space it sits in
  • Shape – Most Islands work best in a rectangular shape … with access to the interior from both “long sides” (the ends being closed off)
  • Seating – Try to avoid all sitting in one line … it’s uncomfortable to keep “craning your neck” talking to people adjacent to you. Sitting around a corner is far more social, and provides far more “elbow room”
  • Type – Island are generally designed to provide either Storage/Seating, or to make a “Working Island” with Sink/Hob etc.
