If you’re going to install a cooktop on your island, don’t forget you’ll need a range hood above it. Otherwise your home will smell like those fried onions forever. If you don’t want a range hood hanging down into the middle of the space, put the sink on your island instead.
You can start with the kitchen cabinets, countertops, kitchen backsplash, and even look to the walls to get everything in place, but don’t forget about optimizing the kitchen island, too. It can be a spot to store pots and pans, food, and other kitchen gadgets; plus, it can provide more surface area for cooking or working, or a spot for a quick bite to eat.
If you have decided that you will integrate your kitchen appliances into the island, you should plan for the function and the spacing. “If the main kitchen sink is on the island, you will require a dishwasher and you will have to decide whether the dishwasher will be placed to the left or the right of your sink. If the island is going to be the main preparation area, you will require compost, trash and recycling areas nearby, too.
