A large kitchen island is a familiar sight in a one-walled open kitchen, and islands can be a great storage option, as well as offering several other important uses, from seating and dining to food preparation. Some open kitchen designs even feature islands with sinks, to maintain the classic work triangle between the sink, refrigerator and stove. When it comes to storage, islands in a one-walled open kitchen may feature sets of pull-out drawers, cabinets, and even appliances or convenient features like a lazy Susan or pull-out garbage can. If a one-walled open kitchen design isn‘t in the cards for you and an L-shaped or other design is planned, you can still easily feature a kitchen island if the space allows.

Case in point: the galley layout, which shapes the kitchen into a narrow aisle. By situating the cabinetry and appliances against opposite walls, full-height cabinets are a good option for taking full advantage of your wall real estate.

Carry out this rule by creating activity centers in the kitchen: centralized places that group and organize tools needed for routine kitchen activities. Each center will be organized according to an activity focus, be assigned a designated space and encompass storage for tools needed for that particular activity.

These are often constructed from thin but sturdy metal to ensure that they‘re light enough to hang but still feel substantial and create significant visual impact. Many homeowners opt for letters with meaning to the household, to represent initials or names.

Most homeowners choose to mirror the overall design of the kitchen, particularly since it‘s usually connected directly to another area of the kitchen, with a single countertop marrying the entire design in an L- or U-shaped kitchen with a peninsula. That said, a peninsula can provide an opportunity to add some visual interest to your kitchen design via unique countertop decorations like glass or porcelain storage containers or bowls of elegantly displayed fruits and vegetables.

A sink/cutting center — the zone for peeling, chopping and washing food — may sit cheek-by-jowl with the cooking center focused on the nearby stove. Drawer and cabinet space may be shared between centers, and so may the tools and items they contain. Don‘t worry! The focus is on function, not boundaries. So long as you can get the job done without taking a step, overlap between activity centers is the norm.
