Kitchen Island

Flamboyance in prepping the food, presenting and entertaining guests from the kitchen space is an art in itself. Pelago Kitchen Island is for those who like to show-off their cooking skills but have limited space. The workstation features multiple counter surfaces that slide away to reveal the sink and has drawers for specific tasks. Granite countertops and aluminum sinks are the obvious choice of materials as they are easy to maintain. It even has a niche space for 2 people to sit while you do the cooking.

The Main Features:

  • A sliding counter-top surface hides prepping sinks when closed, maximizing space and creating an area for either food prepping (sink open) or an entertaining area (sink closed).
  • The two smaller prep sinks make it easier to segregate raw meat from vegetables, reducing the risk of cross contamination. In addition, a larger primary sink is in the center of Pelago providing an area for storing dirty dishes.
  • Multiple sized drawers house different kitchen utensils, tools and dishes.
  • A hands-free opening garbage drawer prevents the spread of bacteria.
  • Opposite the sink station is a kitchen bar counter that is part of the island. Seating for two

      very sleek! a simple solution to address space limitations and a thoughtful nod to the increasing need for food presentation/entertainment.

      Perhaps add a locking mechanism to the slide feature incase the owners have kids where one might open it while another is running by…

      Also where the two sliding tops meet have about a inch thick border (on both edges) be of foam/air bladder to avoid the pain of accidental finger pinching/crushing.

      the underside of the worksurfaces will become riddled with bacteria. Granite is horrible for this as it is naturally pourus. After a few months the whole unit will stink.

        This fault can be resolved by making the entire surface hinged along the back edge (on the edge facing the guests) This way the entire under side can be fully cleaned.

      i’d like to have some support for the sliding counter tops in case if there is too much weight on it or something (groceries, someone leaning, etc). maybe have a reclining stand that folds out?

      It doesn’t matter if you are planning a new home or remodeling an existing kitchen, with granite kitchen countertops you can be sure that you will add to value of your home.
