Kitchen Islands

Idea 7: Cleanup Station

Advantages

Using the island as your cleanup station rather than for cooking or prep work requires locating both the sink and dishwasher there. Trips to and from the dining table will be shorter, but the plumber’s bill will be a little bigger: Extending water lines to an island costs extra.

Design Tips

Add impact to an island by choosing an unusual material like glass for the raised bar top. The round shape adds curves to break up the boxy look of the cabinetry and appliances.
