The Shape A kitchen center counter may be designed in a curved shape, a square shape, an oval shape, a rectangular shape, or an L shape. Basically, the design and shape of the island will also depend on what you are using the new kitchen addition for. Say for example, if you plan to use it as a kitchen table, or simply a boundary between the people hanging out and the people preparing the food, you need to consider shapes with softy contoured edges since these are comfortable to lean on.
However, the added storage brought by a kitchen island is not limited to inside the island itself. While nobody wants to suspend pots and pans from the ceiling above an empty floor, doing so above an island is a more than acceptable use of the space. Indeed, when using the kitchen island for food preparation, this only works to increase the convenience.
In order to make a kitchen island work, you need a fairly large kitchen space to ensure enough space around the island to move freely. If your space is large enough to accommodate an island, then a kitchen island will provide more counter space and more storage space. In an extremely large kitchen you can create two separate work triangles, or reduce the size of the main work triangle, increasing the efficiency of your design. To help you with the design element of incorporating an island an experienced designer is input will be invaluable. The arrangement of the appliances and service supplies may change when you add an island into your design.
Adding an eating area to your kitchen island is a popular option, if you have the space. A raised counter, creating a two tiered island adds useful space to the kitchen while separating the eating surface from the food preparation surface of the island. This type of arrangement is great for families as the children can do homework on the raised surface, while other family members can be preparing a meal. The family can spend time together, yet keep their things separate from each other. The eating area added to an island can add useful space to the kitchen or help to define the kitchen space from other areas of the house.
You can add a touch of class to your kitchen by adding a kitchen island. In fact, if you build a kitchen island, it can efficiently give your kitchen a more contemporary look that will surely be a perfect focal point of the entire room. When creating a kitchen island, there are some factors you need to take into account.
An island top that is on casters may be appealing to a homeowner who does not want to commit to the exact positioning of the island. The countertop can be moved to the end of the kitchen if extra seating is needed or to the middle of the kitchen if extra workspace is needed. A homeowner may also find that he or she can wheel the island into a completely different room if it is needed as extra counter space for craft work or computer equipment.
