Use a material with high impact. This is a place you can customize and it doesn't need to break the bank! Think of using butcher block, quartz, or a piece of granite with artistic marbling to contrast from your other countertops.
Which extra deep drawers, you can store even more such as pots and large mixing bowls, definitely an advantage. Even for smaller kitchen gadgets, drawers are a great solution because they pull out for easy access instead of making you reach deep into the back of cabinetry to search for items. Have animals? Think of a feeding station! Or how about a bookcase on the end. For the wine lover, how about a wine fridge?
