Can a smooth cooktop work with this island?

Melanie ChambersApril 8, 2013
I am hoping to emulate this beautiful kitchen you designed into a home I am buying. Presently, the cooktop is in the island. I would like to know if it is advisable to have a cooktop with a wood countertop? I am trying to not move things around to save $$.
One more question, would it look bad if I put a rug under the chairs that sit at the island to protect the wood floors?

Hi Melanie Chambers!

Thank you for your inquiry! Im sure you could put a cooktop in on the island and it would look great! The only thing is that a walnut top is not as durable as stone, which could lead to problems when cooking. As for the rug we think that a rug could also look great as well. But to get the cleanest look we would suggest putting protective felt pads on the bottom of the stools.

Best of luck!
