    Learn best practices for designing kitchen islands, with a focus on specifying storage, countertops, under-counter and specialty appliances, and making appropriate selections for lighting, ventilation, and computer charging stations.

    A well-designed kitchen island is much more than an afterthought; it is an integral part of the kitchen’s ability to serve the occupant’s needs.  Over the years, kitchen islands have evolved to offer homeowners and designers more than just extra counter space; the kitchen island has become a unique opportunity for customization.  

    When specifying a kitchen island, the first step is determining the function of the island.  The ideal kitchen island requires as much planning and consideration as the rest of a well-designed kitchen.  This multi-purpose space provides designers with creative options, such as a cooking workstation, a prep workstation, seating for guests, a breakfast bar, or even home office area.

    Throughout this course, several designers have graciously provided their expertise to enhance this course material through case studies.
