Some newer kitchen island ideas include the following features rolling islands that can be used where a large island wont fit, granite topped islands, and islands with furniture like features such as pilasters.
If you have decided that your kitchen deserves a kitchen island, there are many ways to make the design unique and creative as well. Here are five tips for you to consider when designing.
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.
Toy kitchen sets like any other pretend play toys throws challenges to children to enact the particular role. In case of kitchen, with toy sets kids learn to pretend to cook or if they are in groups to take up different responsibilities, work together to finish the task on time and some even learn the quality of leadership. The most important of all is that the kids learn to share. This is crucial for single child as they do not get an opportunity to work and play with siblings.
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.
Add a Sink or Two Adding kitchen appliances such as a sink to your new kitchen island will give it even more functionality and also serve as a gathering point when entertaining. A sink boosts the usability of any kitchen island by giving you another place to rinse off food and wash dishes. A sink can also be great when entertaining, so your guests can take part in the preparation of the meal without cluttering up your existing counter space around the oven and refrigerator.
