The island worktop: models and materials
Thanks to TM Italia’s limitless customization skills, design solutions can be endless. In TM Italia the worktop can be made either in laminate – unicolor, stratified or fenix – or in quartz, marble, granite, steel, stoneware or in composite materials such as Corian. The worktop of the island can be made with a straight or slatted edge, or on the “Evo” model where the top, in contact with the door, creates a minimum perceived thickness. For a different impact you can choose the “Air” variant: in this case the top will seem to be suspended, thanks to the 30° cut that allows the easy opening of the doors.
In the design of a kitchen with island, the lighting project is of great importance: the central worktop must have suitable lighting, such as to allow easy food preparation and a comfortable consumption of meals. In the event that the island is completed by a cooking area and appliances, the choice and positioning of the hood and all connections must be provided from the initial design.
