With the work surface and its appliances and fixtures at a lower level, a section of the island can be made to be a raised dining surface. Using a surface material more akin to that of a table top creates a real division between that and the workspace, with different colors also helping to keep work separate to leisure.
Allow adequate countertop space on both sides left and right of the kitchen island if a sink or cooktop will be used. Include at least 15 inches of countertop space on each side, and if your kitchen is large enough, allow even more space. You can never have too much countertop space in a kitchen. Also, rounded countertop corners help protect everyone from bad bruises this is true about all kitchen countertop corners.
Countertop material for the island does not have to match the rest of your kitchen countertops as long as it is harmonious with the rooms overall design. You may want to splurge on solid surfacing here, for example, and use laminate on the other countertops. A butcher block countertop is ideal for chopping, while granite or marble works well for baking purposes and for rolling pastry dough.
