Open-plan kitchens have always been at the centre of everyday life in any family. In former times, people used to gather in the cosy warmth of the kitchen to cook, eat, chat and work at the kitchen table. Important family decisions were frequently made around the dining table. And even today, an open-plan kitchen is still the meeting point in every home. It gives the room a cosy feeling, looks good and the spaciousness of the area makes it perfect for enthusiastic chefs. A kitchen island enhances the cooking experience and provides more space for more quality of life.
CONVERSATION & SOCIAL HUB
Cook together – Enjoy together
A country-style kitchen island will enhance your life if you or your family enjoy cooking together. As the island can be accessed from all sides, the area is perfect for cutting, mixing and garnishing food. When several people cook together, cooking takes less time and becomes more of an experience.
If you enjoy cooking for others, an open-plan kitchen with an island allows you to continue talking to your guests at tahe dining table swhile you prepare the next course. And you can also enjoy a casual meal around the island if you have a few bar stools. The kitchen sinks from the Villeroy & Boch Siluet or Timeline collections can be flush-mounted directly in the worktop to give the kitchen an open and clear look. The Subway and Cisterna collections offer undercounter sinks that can be integrated harmoniously into modern kitchens.
A kitchen island not only has a practical worktop and shelf space, but also plenty of storage space for pots, pans and food that has to be stored in a cool, dark place. Furthermore, the design of the counter is perfect for keeping kitchen appliances within easy reach.
