Include a ventilation hood overhead to eliminate smoke, steam and cooking odors if your kitchen island is going to have a cooktop. The range hood should extend beyond the cooking area by 3 inches or more on the sides for proper ventilation. Using the correct fan size will ensure that removal happens as intended. Have a fan capacity of about 50 cubic feet per minute for each square foot of cooktop area.
How will I want to accessorize the kitchen? Keep in mind as you are choosing your furniture what you will want to add to it will you want to cabinets full of food? Are you planning to purchase a set of dollhouse china? Pots and pans? As you think about what you will want to add as accessories, make sure there will be places to display these items in your kitchen.
What look am I going for in the kitchen? Your kitchen can have a modern, classic, polished, homey, or rustic look, just for example. Some kitchens come with marble counter tops. Other kitchen sets have beautiful, bright hand painted decor. You may want your kitchen to look lived in, or you may want something more sophisticated. Explore several different types of kitchen sets you may be surprised at what you like best.
To help make this new area as practical as it can be, consider adding the same fixtures and appliances you find in the original workspace. An extra sink with running water, a stovetop, electrical sockets for blenders and whisks, and space for garbage and recycling bins can save a lot of walking to and fro.
Provide enough clearance. That should be enough room between your island and kitchen cabinets. Specifically, three to four feet is usually adequate. If you are in doubt, provide more space, so that your family will be comfortable around the kitchen island table. In addition, when you put in your island, make sure you measure so that you sure you have enough clearance. This will help prevent mistakes or accidents because there are things that are too close to the kitchen island.
Aside from increasing the amount of workspace and providing a new dining area, a kitchen island can be designed to incorporate extra storage space for those who need it.
