Include a ventilation hood overhead to eliminate smoke, steam and cooking odors if your kitchen island is going to have a cooktop. The range hood should extend beyond the cooking area by 3 inches or more on the sides for proper ventilation. Using the correct fan size will ensure that removal happens as intended. Have a fan capacity of about 50 cubic feet per minute (cfm) for each square foot of cooktop area.
If you have plenty of kitchen space in the middle, you can install an L-shaped island with countertops matching the rest of the kitchen. Not only will this add style to your kitchen, it will also enable the island to be used as a spare dining table.
Kitchen islands are great for open floor plans. Placed directly in the center, such they can easily control incoming traffic at huge gatherings. They also include a raised eating area, a sink, dishwasher and drawers. It is also useful as a serving surface for large groups or a dining area for small gatherings.
