The place in your home where food is prepared is called the kitchen.
This kitchen has an island.*
This word is often used as an adjective to describe things that are in the kitchen:
Note: Kitchens are an area where the family often gathers, so kitchens continue to get larger and larger in American homes. In older homes, the kitchen might be small and include a pantry (a small room for extra food); however, small kitchens are often remodeled nowadays in order to make them larger. It’s very common for there to be an area in the kitchen where people can eat–even in houses that have a separate dining room.
*island: A kitchen island looks like a large, built-in table. It often has additional storage space and sometimes the island has a sink, a stove, or a small refrigerator for wine. An island can also be used as an area for eating. In this case, it would need enough space for chairs
*appliances: machines that make life easier in the kitchen: dishwashers, extra stoves and ovens, food preparation equipment, etc.
