Aside from increasing the amount of workspace and providing a new dining area, a kitchen island can be designed to incorporate extra storage space for those who need it.
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.
There are plenty of accessories to go with the Kidkraft kitchen sets as well. There are several packages of fake food items that a child can whip up in no time, along with pots, pans, and dishes. For example, one of the packages has pizza and hot dogs, as well as french fries, chicken legs, sweets and even canned goods. If a parent is looking for something specific, Kidkraft toys also provide birthday cake kits and other excellent snacks. When the play food is covered, Kidkraft has sets of eating dishes and separately sells sauce pots and frying pans so that with just a few extra dollars you can have everything a kitchen needs. As well as these basic things, there are also add on items such as toasters, microwaves and refrigerators. Some of the kitchen sets come with these appliances added on but you can still purchase them separately.
Either way, installing a kitchen island is a quick and effective way to add more surface area for the all important washing, peeling, mixing and chopping.
Two is Better Than One With the different levels, materials, and appliances that are all used to create a kitchen island, why stop with just one? Adding multiple islands creates not one, but two or more focal points for your kitchen. Multiple islands could be connected or remain separated in your kitchen to give yourself additional countertop space, gathering areas, and more. Putting an island on wheels is another way to make the island convenient, and is a perfect idea for people who love to entertain and need a space that can change in an instant.
Maximize natural light by having windows and skylights, and keep kitchen wall surfaces light in color to reflect daylight. Custom kitchen islands work great by using pendant or recessed fixtures to direct light onto the kitchen island and other work areas. Electrical codes will likely require that electrical outlets be located on the sides of fixed kitchen islands, not on the top, to prevent electrical shock.
Cabinets in the body of the island can be used to store less frequently used appliances while open shelving filled with cookbooks or linen and towels can enhance the look of the entire kitchen.
