Extra storage is one of the main benefits of a kitchen island. You get more cabinet space and shelving, allowing you to store cookware, food, wine, cookbooks, and serving items. Everything is close to hand, especially when your island doubles as a cooking surface. There are a variety of storage options to be enjoyed with a kitchen island and these largely mirror the same solutions found in wall-attached cabinets. You have cupboard space, shelving, wine racks, spice racks, cutlery drawers, plate drawers, pull-out baskets, and more. All of these different storage options can be considered for the final island design.
The first is in the form of an overhead extractor which sits directly above the cooking area. Often a ceiling bulkhead is fitted, rather than fitting the apparatus directly to the ceiling itself. This hides the wiring and the body of the extractor, and complements the wider kitchen design. The second option is an in-built downdraft extractor. This is fitted into the island itself and rises from the countertop when needed, usually at the push of a button. It’s largely invisible when not in use and lowered back into the island.
