This means the footprint of the island actually extends from floor to ceiling another example of the net gain in usable space it brings.
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.
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.
A island counter can be a great place to put a microwave, blender or mixer. Some islands can have electrical outlets installed and can allow for the operation of these appliances while they are resting on the counter. A island countertop can also have a stove top installed to allow for more cooking space in the kitchen. These islands may also need to be equipped with an exhaust fan for the stove top.
One of the largest pros to a kitchen island is having that space for friends or family members to congregate in the kitchen area. One can place bar stools, or high seated chairs up against a kitchen island which invites that comfort zone. Most of us are aware that people tend to congregate to the kitchen area, after all it is the heart of the home.
Kitchen islands are decorative and also functional compliments to any kitchen remodel. The island can often become the focal point of the kitchen without much effort. When remodeling or redesigning your kitchen, imagine how you would interact and entertain in your new space. These pieces tend to create a more diverse gathering place in the kitchen one where you can not only entertain and dine, but also prep for cooking, play cards and board games with the family, and of course enjoy all the added storage and functionality that they offer.
