Material of the Kitchen Cart and Island: They are available in a wide variety of materials including wood, stainless steel or even granite tops. While the stainless steel carts and islands are the easiest to maintain as they do not get scratched or stained very easily, the wood or tile tops are also durable. You need to keep in mind the overall look of your kitchen while choosing the material of the cart or island. For example, if you have a wood finishing in your kitchen, then an oak wood kitchen island or a white kitchen island would be the best choice for you.
Include a ventilation hood overhead to eliminate smoke, steam and cooking odors if your kitchen island is going to have a cooktop. The range hood should extend beyond the cooking area by 3 inches or more on the sides for proper ventilation. Using the correct fan size will ensure that removal happens as intended. Have a fan capacity of about 50 cubic feet per minute (cfm) for each square foot of cooktop area.
Maximize natural light by having windows and skylights, and keep kitchen wall surfaces light in color to reflect daylight. Custom kitchen islands work great by using pendant or recessed fixtures to direct light onto the kitchen island and other work areas. Electrical codes will likely require that electrical outlets be located on the sides of fixed kitchen islands, not on the top, to prevent electrical shock.
