Kitchen island design is vast, as the British would say! So many different shapes and sizes; some more for show, others simply practical work stations.
The island above is in a Shaughnessy residence; a historic district in Vancouver, British Columbia. This island is 10′ wide x 7′ deep. It has a large sink in the middle, ta set of Fischer Paykel dishwasher drawers on either side of the sink and a Sharp microwave drawer on one end.
The custom cabinets are beaded inset face frame cabinets with concealed adjustable hinges and full extension soft-closing drawer slides.
This kitchen island is part of a modern French country style kitchen. The island cabinets are square inset face framed cabinets made of alder with a two-tone brushed milk paint finish. The counter-top is reclaimed Douglas fir. See more photos from this project here.
This Calgary, Alberta kitchen actually has two islands, with one serving mostly as a place to pull up a stool for a snack or visit with the cook.
The larger top drawer with a small badge is a single Fischer Paykel dishwasher drawer next to the island prep sink. There is another standard dishwasher next to the main sink. See more project photos here.
