Another novelty that evokes the tradition of Italian master craftsmen is this playfully arranged worktop a part of the Minà kitchen project. Combining traditions, retro hints, and cutting-edge technology the designer composed multifunctional island with an artistic and dynamic pattern. Minà features a pewter-plated steel worktop combined with a breakfast bar tiled in lava stone. The exquisite artisanal surfaces of the island is made by laying Sicilian glazed volcanic stone tiles over a water-repellent support: innovative, artistic and brings back the rich textural and colorful effect into the kitchen.
Skylights can be an answer to both the storage and lighting problem. By throwing light downwards and outwards, the need for small windows is reduced, freeing up valuable vertical wall space which can then be used for high-rise cupboards. With a galley kitchen, consider installing French windows opening out on to your garden. If you lay a deck right outside the exit you can leave the windows open during the summer, increasing the feeling of space by making a garden room.

As you are designing your kitchen and accounting for doubled appliances and maximizing it's storage, keep in mind that twice the appliances also means twice the electrical and plumbing needs. Be sure to take this into account and factor in clearance for your appliances, and also to install adequate ventilation to remove extra cooking fumes and moisture. These may infringe on spaces that would otherwise be used for cabinetry and for this reason a lot of designers suggest extending cabinetry to the ceiling to allow for maximum storage.
