The bottom line on having a kitchen island would be to determine the size of your kitchen and the amount you are comfortable with spending. There are numerous kitchen designers who can help with the decisions.
What kind of colors and materials do I want? Some kitchen sets are made all out of one kind of material for example, everything is made out of wood, or all the pieces are plastic others have a mixture for example, wooden cabinets with a plastic refrigerator. The most common type of material in a kitchen set is wood, either painted white or stained a certain color oak, maple, walnut, pine, cherry. There are many types of hand painted kitchen sets, either plain all painted blue or black, for example, or decorated. You can purchase kitchen sets that are very simple in terms of style and materials, or very polished you can buy furniture with marble countertops, stylized cabinets, or padded chairs. Just keep your desired style and your budget in mind as you shop around.
There are also kitchen islands which can be moved as they are on rollers. This can be a benefit if the kitchen is small enough a stationary island could get in the way. The moveable island can be put into place when working in the kitchen, then moved when the tasks have been completed.
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.
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.
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.
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.
