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.
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.
Maximize natural light by having windows and skylights, and keep kitchen wall surfaces light in color to reflect daylight. Custom kitchen islands work great by using pendant or recessed fixtures to direct light onto the kitchen island and other work areas. Electrical codes will likely require that electrical outlets be located on the sides of fixed kitchen islands, not on the top, to prevent electrical shock.
Kids at age 36 months start to imitate what adults do in their daily activities. When adults like their mom and dad do laundry, cooking, cleaning, or even eating, kids watch them doing these activities and imitate them. Parents should consider getting their kids toys that work with this imitation pattern, and let the kids experience doing the same activities that adults do with similar toys. Kitchen sets for kids are one of the best toys you can get for your kids, especially for girls. Kids will experience make believe activities such as preparing the food, cooking, setting a table and washing the dishes. More excitingly, many sets also come with a refrigerator that will make the kids play time much more thrilling. Kids can pretend getting the food to cook out from the refrigerator and putting leftovers into it.
Customized Style This is a type of island where you can create a unique style for your own island. You may choose the style that is convenient for you to use and the right size for your own kitchen. This must not be too small or too big when placed in your kitchen. A customized style will also allow you to choose the right color for your preference and will surely fit for your everyday use. Although you can get exactly what you want and design it to match your existing kitchen, it is obviously the most expensive option.
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.
