Large kitchen island with oak topCountry Kitchen, Hampshire

This bespoke professional cook's kitchen features a custom copper and stainless steel La Cornue range cooker and extraction canopy, built to match the client's copper pans. Italian Black Basalt stone shelving lines the walls resting on Acero stone brackets, a detail repeated on bench seats in front of the windows between glazed crockery cabinets. The table was made in solid English oak with turned legs. The project’s special details include inset LED strip lighting rebated into the underside of the stone shelves, wired invisibly through the stone brackets.

Primary materials: Hand painted Sapele; Italian Black Basalt; Acero limestone; English oak; Lefroy Brooks white brick tiles; antique brass, nickel and pewter ironmongery.

Inspiration for a large rural l-shaped enclosed kitchen in Hampshire with wood worktops, white splashback, an island, a built-in sink, recessed-panel cabinets, metro tiled splashback and limestone flooring. —  Houzz

Protect wood from water damageIf you fancy a solid wood worktop but are worried about water damage, this is a neat solution. The chunky kitchen island here combines rustic oak with a cool stone section around the sink that allows for fuss-free washing-up.If you’re inspired by this idea, talk to your kitchen designer to see what they suggest for you. Other options might be to just have a small stone insert behind the sink, where the taps connect to the worktop, or to have a stone or quartz draining board insert.

The space allowed for a particularly large kitchen island, which maintained the Edwardian feel. ‘If you were to have ventured into a cook’s kitchen in an Edwardian home, you would have found a big, brutal island designed for heavy use and often up to six people working around it,’ Andrew says. For inspiration, he picked up on the style of Edwin Lutyens, a prominent British architect famous for fusing Edwardian contemporary with older styles. ‘The whole room has an Edwardian cook’s working kitchen flavour to it,’ he adds.

I like this table island. Could use this design leaving off the lower shelf on 1/2 of it allowing foer seating, while still giving me the large table look for the buther block top. for prep, and the marble for other 1//2. Looks like I'd make the diminsions 4 or 4' 6''. wide - 8'-9' long.
