What Houzz contributors are saying:
In this closer view, you can see there are three holes in the plinth of the first unit on the left. “The owners wanted to store vegetables in there, so we added these for ventilation,” Yaniv says.The sleek hob is flush to the island work surface (all the slimline worktops are 25mm quartz). “The cool thing about it is that it takes up only the space of one top drawer, so you’re left with lots of storage space,” Yaniv says. The raised, circular detail in the centre of the hob is the extractor fan; the duct is the same width as the fan opening and this goes down through the centre of the island and under the floor screed. It runs over to the window and comes out on the other side of the left-hand wall.Quartz worktop, Planet Marble. Elicia NikolaTesla HP ducting induction hob, John Lewis & Partners.

Put a lid on itAnd for those things you don’t want to pack away, but with which you don’t want your baby to play? “If there are knick-knacks you want to keep in one place, jars with lids are good,” Jill says. “Or try ceramic pots with lids or old enamel tins – small children seem less interested if they can’t see there’s stuff inside.”
