The design of a kitchen island is completely up to the homeowner. Some of the islands come in a natural wood color. This allows the homeowner to keep the island counter in the natural wood finish or the counter can be stained. Before designing the countertop, the home owner should decide what look he or she is trying to achieve in the kitchen. A new trendy is to install a island top that is a bright color that does not necessarily match the already present color scheme in the kitchen. This makes the kitchen seem more artsy and funky and can make the island really stand out in the room. A homeowner may also decide that he or she wants a traditional kitchen island countertop that matches the rest of the color scheme. He or she will then need to design the kitchen island counter with the same materials and staining as the rest of the cabinetry and countertops in the kitchen.
Kitchen Islands have become so popular that this has even led to the creation of unique design styles of their own. A kitchen island can have the same design as the main counter and cabinets or it can have its own unique design.
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.
If you have decided that your kitchen deserves a kitchen island, there are many ways to make the design unique and creative as well. Here are five tips for you to consider when designing.
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.
These tips are great to consider when designing a kitchen island, but it is always OK to stray away from these tips in order to create a personalized piece for your space. Consider your type of lifestyle and the goals for your kitchen space then go from there! It is important to consider the costs you are willing to spend on this new kitchen addition, as well as creating a cohesive and functional design. Most importantly, have fun when designing this new piece and you wont go wrong.
