What of ready to install kitchen islands? As much as possible, do not buy this type of kitchen islands no matter how avant garde they may look because they may not match your overall kitchen and home decor and you will end up spending more than necessary or become dejected because one part of the house does not complement the rest.
Besides meal preparation, the kitchen can become a gathering area for family and friends if there is enough space. Since so much happens in the kitchen on a regular basis, getting the layout right is important. The kitchen island can serve as an additional eating area, and food preparation can easily be done there. In a large kitchen, the kitchen island can shorten the distances within the working triangle sink, refrigerator and range or cooktop and make it more efficient.
There are some cons of having a kitchen island. The largest one is expense. Placing a permanent kitchen island with running water and electric as many of the islands have can be extremely expensive. If one is doing a kitchen remodel, adding the electric or gas line to an island during a remodel can cost a tremendous amount of extra money. Even without electric, gas, or water, the cost of a stationary island can run into several thousand dollars, which might be better used elsewhere.
Squeezing a kitchen island into a very limited space may make your kitchen appear unappealing and cluttered regardless of the features or countertops you have. Consider that there are already existing appliances in your kitchen that you need to make room for.
A kitchen island counter is easy to design and install and can add value and usefulness to a kitchen. A kitchen island top may be needed by a homeowner because a kitchen does not provide enough counter, cabinet or eating space. Even a small island countertop can make a kitchen feel easier to move around in and prepare food in. A kitchen island top can also be equipped with different accessories, making it even more helpful to store kitchen utensils and appliances.
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.
