Kitchen islands

The idea of having a ‘central island’ – a floating block of units in the middle of the room - was inspired by professional kitchens.

Over the years, designers have adapted the high performance equipment that busy chefs use to bring us all sorts of modern gizmos and gadgets – stainless steel worktops, special chopping blocks, in-built appliances…
