Kitchen Island Configurations: Granite Countertops for Easy Clean-up of Oil Spills

Fried chicken from a cast iron skillet is everyone’s favorite – but, oh, the cleanup. Oil and batter splattered all around the stove, countertop and sides. De-greasing all the surfaces isn’t that hard if there’s a little “wall” around the stove to keep the cooking mess in.

We designed two side cabinets that are 12” higher than the cooking surface; also, the back was raised 12” – with an overhang.  A large wok works perfectly in this space.

The combination of IKEA wall cabinets, base cabinets and back panel are an unconventional design that solves a very conventional problem.

About IKD

IKD began several years ago designing IKEA kitchens for IKEA authorized installation contractors. We've successfully completed thousands of IKEA kitchen designs for every possible range of size, shape, budget and style. We still continue to design for these IKEA contractors, but also serve those IKEA consumers that just want a design or will install themselves. Most often customers want a better quality design than what they can do with IKEA's Home Planner.
