A New Way to Do Kitchen Islands?

German kitchens brand Next125 have been working with alternative format kitchen islands for years and are well known for their free-standing islands but with the promo photos from Cosentino, what really caught our eye was the kitchen island that the Cinder Craze Urban Crush Silestone work-surface was atop.

This minimalist kitchen island using the Cinder Craze worktop with its open shelf storage, bookcase ends for recipe books and a large unobstructed countertop is a perfect workhorse for a busy kitchen.

There is a tendency in a lot of kitchen island designs to cram in as much as possible. But adding an induction hob, sink, overhead extractor, bench seating and underneath the counter, the ubiquitous wine cooler and over-sized drawers only achieves clutter.

This design is simple and draws influences from the work benches you might see in a cooking class. A perfect, oversized food prep zone and no plumbing, electrics or extraction to worry about so its also a very cheap solution for a kitchen island.

Sometimes, it isnt the kitchen designers that offer some great kitchen design ideas, but those working in the supply chain and whomever designer this for Cosentino did a great job of showing that sometimes, less is more....
