When utilizing part of the kitchen as a breakfast bar or other dining space, including a recess for chairs or stools to be placed underneath when not in use is another simple design idea that helps to maximize the space available while bringing extra features to the kitchen.
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.
According to the National Association of Home Builders, kitchen islands are one of the most popular kitchen design features among today is consumers. The NAHB also reports that buyers of new homes have also indicated a desire for kitchen islands as well. Actually some 80% of homebuyers consider a kitchen island to be an absolute must.
One con that was noted was placement of an island can disrupt the flow of a kitchen. The work flow in a kitchen revolves around a triangle of refrigerator, sink, and range. An island can actually disrupt the flow of this working triangle, causing more issues in preparation, cooking, and cleanup. It is important to have placement so there is not a dead zone in the kitchen, or an area of countertop that goes unused due to the placement of the island.
A parent searching for a pretend kitchen for their son or daughter need look no further after looking at Kidkraft kitchen sets. These durable Kidkraft toys are built to last through years of utter destruction and tireless hours of play. The kitchen sets come with plenty of accessories to complete the play area and parents will love the fact that if a part gets broken, it can be replaced. Kids will love the idea that they can get in the kitchen and play house, or that they can get in the kitchen and whip up whatever Mommy and Daddy want to eat. Either way, Kidkraft toys and Kidkraft kitchen sets are superior to others of their kind.
Levels If you decide to go the smaller sized route when constructing your island that does not necessarily mean that you have to give up surface area. Adding a second level of a different height to your design will give the piece additional functionality. Multiple levels can be used for different functions such as a place for a cutting board or book shelf, or as a breakfast bar with stool beneath it. These alternative designs can help give your kitchen island a more customized appeal.
