What kind of colors and materials do I want? Some kitchen sets are made all out of one kind of material for example, everything is made out of wood, or all the pieces are plastic others have a mixture for example, wooden cabinets with a plastic refrigerator. The most common type of material in a kitchen set is wood, either painted white or stained a certain color oak, maple, walnut, pine, cherry. There are many types of hand painted kitchen sets, either plain all painted blue or black, for example, or decorated. You can purchase kitchen sets that are very simple in terms of style and materials, or very polished you can buy furniture with marble countertops, stylized cabinets, or padded chairs. Just keep your desired style and your budget in mind as you shop around.
You can add food preparation surfaces underneath the island. While food preparation is part of any kitchen, it is not the most thrilling sight for others to see. Fortunately, you can create levels of preparation areas underneath the islands surface. This allows you to do whatever slicing, mixing, and other activities you need to do without everyone seeing the mess.
Choose the right surface. Depending on what you use the island for, you will need to pick the right surface.
Size Once you have decided on the materials that you like to use, it is time to consider the size. Do you want to go big and dramatic, making your kitchen island a focal piece of your kitchen remodel? Or are you more interested in something smaller and less obtrusive, using the island more for standalone functional? Consider how much use it will get, what it will be used for, and how important open floor space is in your kitchen when deciding on dimensions.
This means the footprint of the island actually extends from floor to ceiling another example of the net gain in usable space it brings.
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.
Another con is space. While it was mentioned previously that there are rolling islands, if space is at a premium, an island may just not be practical. There is nothing more frustrating to a cook than having something in the way when you are trying to prepare meals for your family, or yourself. If your kitchen is small, while you may long for extra storage space and countertop, an island might not be the best solution.
