Of course, waterfall islands are clearly good from a design point of view, but this is not the only benefit and positive that they have. One of the main reasons that they are a great add in to your kitchen is that they give you some additional space that you can use as a seating space or perhaps even somewhere to eat. Depending on the overhang of the waterfall part of the worktop, you may be able to fit some stools underneath, which means that guests, family or anyone who happens to be in your garden can take a seat.
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.
As the kitchen island is usually the focal point of the kitchen, it’s important there’s suitable lighting to match. You want to island to be well lit, especially when the surface area is used for food preparation and daily social activities. Most lighting will be in the form of overhead light fixtures, which you can find in pretty much any style.
As you can see, there are a variety of reasons why a waterfall kitchen island might be just what you are looking to add to your space. Of course, you are going to need a kitchen that is large enough to accommodate an island and you are going to need to make sure that you speak to an expert about what is achievable in your kitchen too. That way you can have a kitchen island that not only looks great, but that adds in some functionality to your kitchen too.
