It was bound to happen sooner or later. I read today that a famous interior decorator (female) has proclaimed that Kitchen Islands are now officially passe.
Not only that, they were never practical to begin with; it takes up too much needed space unless you have a huge, huge kitchen. Furthermore, if the island has a sink and dishwasher built in it is expensive and difficult to install. Finally, nobody really uses the island as a mini-table to serve a meal on or as a counter to prepare a meal or snack. In other words it is impractical and unnecessary. How does this grab you?
