I am often amazed by the fine examples of architecture I see in kitchens today. Here is a great design from Bulthaup featuring an island as its centerpiece. It seems that you can never have enough storage for dishes, pots, pans and other accessories. This piece attempts to reduce counter clutter by offering six large drawers for storage. The bar is a nice change from your regular dining room and invites other people to sit and converse while a meal is prepared. The spacing is great in this example, with ample room between the sink and the kitchen island. I always like the fact that you can approach the island from any side giving you easy access. Another attractive feature with Bulthaup is their willingness to create designs in any living space.
