high BTU burners. You have to worry about flames with children. And more and more of these islands incorporate seating, so that's something else to consider. What I'm seeing more is an island as a prep area, a sink and faucet, and less likely a cook top."

She says more people are incorporating design features into their islands. Faux legs to make it look like furniture, pendant lamps above to give it a more decorated focus, nice counter stools.

One thing we're seeing less of is the island cook top.

As for the island itself, the minimum surface work area is about 3 feet by 4 feet. Anything less and you're defeating the purpose. There are also reasons not to get too big.

Another consideration for an island is storage. Eating utensils, plastic wraps, dishwashing soaps and cleaning supplies all can find a home there. De Giulio, who will create this year's version of the ultimate American kitchen for the House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year event in July, likes to keep the back side of an island more open, with shelving for cookbooks, for example.
