If you are convinced that the powerful extractor hood above the stove will save you, do not believe it is only slightly reduce the intensity of the odor. In large families, where they are used to cook a lot and often have to put up with a sofa and curtains, smelling kitchen;
  • The modern kitchen is filled with a mass of household appliances. Microwave, dishwasher, and sometimes washing machine, coffee maker, kettle, fridge, all the amenities of civilization make sounds, and not everyone likes the "chorus" during the holidays;
  • When cleaning is a pair of unwashed dishes or cups, on the separate kitchen is not evident.

But you need to mount it with the mind. If this add-on to the desktop, it should be noted that the distance to the sink and stove must be no closer than 1,2 m but not more than 3m.

If you plan to exclusively BANQUET option, then it rises slightly above the table top, and the traditional bar stools, in when they are provided for, shall be placed on the part of the kitchen so that the eyes sitting facing out living room. With this approach, it will be convenient not only give out snacks for the guests, but also to drink a cup of tea on the desk itself.

Tip: The kitchen stove on the island makes sense to install only if it is an electric version.
Gas burners, in addition to complex and very costly for documenting, the room look pretty rough.

As a full dining table, this design is not well suited, because in most cases, all the space under the sink take all sorts of cabinets and shelves for kitchen utensils, plus a table level is usually made up of the traditional lunch. Although some models around the island bar stools are provided for a light snack.
