Invest in a kitchen island

If the kitchen is in a completely new room, it can be economical to put all the services - sink, dishwasher, hob, oven and extractor - in the island unit. The walls are then free for storage cabinets. An island can also become the focus of the whole kitchen, and may include a raised breakfast bar or lowered table creating a dining area.

Get the look: Thomas & Thomas, Mowlem & Co, Plain English, Roundhouse and Clive Christian are good at incorporating islands
