  • Modern kitchen island | Kitchens | Kitchen ideas | Image | Housetohome

    Contemporary kitchen with island

    Floor-to-ceiling cupboards make the best use of space here – rarely used items can be stored out of reach. If you prefer not to fit a hob or sink in your kitchen island, you might like to think about a built-in wine rack and wine fridge, like the one here – and the surface is nice and clear for sitting and eating at.
