In large rooms, a central “kitchen island” provides extra work space or storage, and can even be plumbed or wired to house hob, sink or fridge. Always a focal point, it needs to be planned so that you don’t waste journeys around it. The centre will be relatively inaccessible, but is a good place over which to hang pots and pans.
