HARDWORKING ISLANDS

Not longer belonging strictly in the kitchen, island worktops are increasingly being used as secondary (and sometimes primary) dining zones. This is due to the popularity of open-concept kitchens where the cooking space seamlessly merges into the eating space. And it makes sense too, why use it just for food prep when you can also use it as an extended dining table when guests come a-knocking? What’s more, island countertops are easy to clean, thanks to their durable surfaces. So using it as a substitute tabletop is a no brainer, really.
