Kitchen Island designs are important to consider if you think a kitchen island would fit in well with your current setup. If you have decided that a kitchen island is a good idea and it usually is, if you want more work space and or eating space, here are some things to consider so that you choose the right one for your needs and decor.
Levels If you decide to go the smaller sized route when constructing your island that does not necessarily mean that you have to give up surface area. Adding a second level of a different height to your design will give the piece additional functionality. Multiple levels can be used for different functions such as a place for a cutting board or book shelf, or as a breakfast bar with stool beneath it. These alternative designs can help give your kitchen island a more customized appeal.
Add a Sink or Two Adding kitchen appliances such as a sink to your new kitchen island will give it even more functionality and also serve as a gathering point when entertaining. A sink boosts the usability of any kitchen island by giving you another place to rinse off food and wash dishes. A sink can also be great when entertaining, so your guests can take part in the preparation of the meal without cluttering up your existing counter space around the oven and refrigerator.
Allow adequate countertop space on both sides left and right of the kitchen island if a sink or cooktop will be used. Include at least 15 inches of countertop space on each side, and if your kitchen is large enough, allow even more space. You can never have too much countertop space in a kitchen. Also, rounded countertop corners help protect everyone from bad bruises this is true about all kitchen countertop corners.
Island wheel style This type of island is like a counter but has wheels. This kind is convenient to use because it does not need extra space on your kitchen. Having wheels, there is no difficulty in transferring the island from one place to the other since it is not stationary. However, installing a sink and other appliances is not possible.
Kitchen islands have become very popular as a new part of the kitchen. It does not literally mean land surrounded by water as what we may think when we hear about an island. Actually, it is a striking and eye catching part of your kitchen that can provide different functions in your kitchen. It can serve as storage for your things or a working table for your food preparation. There are a lot of usages for a kitchen island depending on your need or your preferences.
Determine what you are going to use the island for. When choosing an island design for your kitchen, one of the most effective steps is to determine the function of the island. Will you use it strictly as a place to eat and chat? Will you use it for a microwave, refrigerator, or sink? There is no right or wrong function of your kitchen island. Instead, it is important to determine how it can enhance your time in the kitchen.
