    Sounds pretty snug -- it's nice having about 14-16" or so to the left of the range for hot pots, dishing, etc. So with a 30" range, that would leave a little over two feet to the right. Best way to see if that's right for your cooking style is to mock it up with masking tape on a big table and suss out whether it's adequate.

    Thank you! I will give it a try!

    Hello. What faucet did you use?

    Chicago Faucets. They're modular, so mix-and-match.

    Chicago Faucets -- they're modular, so you can get it with a different spout, levers, etc.

    Thank you so much for the information! One more question, about how high are the rods off the top of the shelf?

    Mine are 2-3/4" off the surface. We've got pots with higher lids now though, which can still fit but if I redid it I'd probably experiment with the rod spacing at 1-3/4" or 2". See what works!

    Garbage pull-out is on hinges attached to the post in the foreground.

    Just like the others -- sponge when necessary -- although they can detach if needed.
  • richardlandis88
    Very clever storage for the lids.

    I had it made by a local stainless sheet metal fabricator who specialized in restaurant equipment--they did the fold-down sink front and vertical slide-out bin sides as well. I attached it to two hinges from Home Depot that I bent in a vise to the right shape.

    Opposite this island (behind the camera, to the left) are wall cabinets, a sink under the window, and the dw to the left of the sink.

    I wound up with inside dimensions of 18-1/2" wide x 35-1/2" deep -- really deep, in other words. With extra-long slides. Even Bertha, our 8 qt saucepan, fits in there with her friends.

    I have no idea how to break the cost of the island out of the cost of the surrounding kitchen, custom sheet metal work, counters, plumbing and electric, structural work, etc. I would guess if you were to get prices from all the individual subcontractors for the island alone it would be anywhere around $18k to 30k plus suspended shelves (cut off in this photo), depending on materials chosen, not including range and hood. You could probably get a lot of the custom racks and such in pre-made versions though.

    Thanks! It's about 4' by 9', but you'd want to size it based on the room you have. Best thing to do is have a custom cabinet maker put together your ideal configuration, with shelf spacing, etc to fit your equipment.

5. MacGyver-style island. Instead of lining up everything galley style, try opening up the room and putting all of the necessities in a compact all-in-one island. The custom island shown here contains a sink, a stove, a range, prep space, storage for pots and pans, knives, spices and garbage. As if that weren’t enough, the opposite side has space for a few people to perch on stools.

Specialized storage doesn't hurt either. This super island makes putting dishes and supplies away after a big meal instantly less stressful. Tell us: What kitchen feature makes cooking and cleaning less stressful for you and your partner?

The space-saving island design is Gainer's favorite thing about the kitchen. The top drawer is a knife rack and the third drawer has a pot-lid rack with adjustable steel rods, which he designed. The space between the sink and the cabinet walls was just big enough for Gainer to put in a drawer for tall bottles of olive oil and other cooking essentials. The apron front of the sink is actually a tilt-out tray to keep items handy, and there's a custom swing-out trash can for easy cleanup.

I like the open pullout to the left in the picture--lots of capacity

Don't need the cooker or sink. love all the storage and want to have extendable worktops so you can sit all around the table not just on one side
