A good kitchen island can help your kitchen look even better than it is. It is basically a way to add extra furniture your kitchen for much needed extra space, so that you can have extra seating or a bigger food prep area. Whether you need more eating space, more cooking space, or both, a good kitchen island can fulfill your needs for you.
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.
Kitchen islands are a design feature that can make your kitchen much more efficient. But, a word of caution this is one design item where you should definitely consult with a design expert while you are designing your kitchen. Unless you have lots of experience in kitchen design, or interior decorating, it is hard to get a good feel for how an island will work.
Additional kitchen island ideas are to consider using shelf space on the sides of your kitchen island for cookbooks, collectibles or storage. A built in TV works here, especially if it faces the family room. Or a microwave may work well for heating up after school snacks and cooking foods quickly.
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.
Kitchen islands work best in larger L, U or G shape kitchens. If the kitchen is too small, the kitchen island will become an obstruction and hinder easy movement. The best custom kitchen islands for small to midsize kitchens are a portable butcher block or kitchen cart for food prep or extra storage.
