In many home designs, you must have been familiar with Kitchen Island in the kitchen. It is like a small kitchen counter standing in the middle of the kitchen. The use of it is not always the same. It is because it can be designed for various purposes. If you want additional cook space for example, you can definitely consider Kitchen Island with cooktop. However, cooktop in Kitchen Island is designed variously. Let me show you the pretty nice ones here.
Kitchen Island in “Kitchen with Library and Guest Bath”
The first design of kitchen island with cooktop I want to tell you here can be seen in “Kitchen with Library and Guest” designed by Studio Bergtraun AIA. You can see that the kitchen island there is rectangular and narrow, so there is no more space in front of the stove on the cooktop to be used as kitchen table to eat. That is why you can’t expect it to give you enough space if you want to eat there with one or two more people.
However, it is still not impossible for you to design kitchen table for one person, you see. How can be so? It is because the kitchen island with cooktop here is rectangular in its shape. You may have used one corner to put the stove, but you can still use the opposite corner to be used as kitchen table. Put a stool and you are done with it. Such kitchen island is good for kitchen with smaller space. It can be good breakfast nook if you are living alone.
Kitchen Island in “Home Design-The Azumi”
The second design of kitchen island with cooktop here is the one in “Home Design-The Azumi” designed by Webb & Brown-Neaves. If the first one is suitable for kitchen with smaller space, this one is suitable for the bigger one. The kitchen island’s cooktop here has the same shape as the one before that is rectangular. But, this one is wider for you can still get space in front of the stove. We are not going to use that space though.
Just like the first, this one has the stove designed around one corner, leaving the rest of the space without anything on it. Thus, you still get pretty wide space to be made as kitchen table to eat together with more than one person to accompany you. So, you can put up to three stools side by side for that, besides the stove but facing different sides. Kitchen Island with cooktop like this allows you to have wide kitchen table too.
