What Houzz contributors are saying:
For years there was a trend of putting the cooktop in the island, but it was never a design I was crazy about. The reason: Unless you do a downdraft hood, you end up blocking the view you’re trying to open by using an island in the first place. And while downdrafts might work well enough, they don’t work as well as canopy hoods. The nice thing about putting the main sink in the island in lieu of the cooktop is that you get to use pendant lighting and keep the space feeling open and airy.
