Storage Station

It's not only appliances that get stowed away in kitchen islands. Large 30-inch-wide drawers on one side hold cookware and linens. The open shelf stores serving dishes.

If your customer likes this design, you might want to warn them that anyone who pulls up a stool or even leans on the countertop is going to want to rest their foot on the bottom shelf, which could cause problems with cleanliness.
