If there is enough space in your kitchen, I advise you to do a kitchen Island.Kitchen islands provide so many benefits to your kitchen – extra storage space underneath, extra counter space and prep space on top, as well as the additional interest the island will add to your kitchen design.
Here are kitchen island ideas to consider when planning your kitchen:
1.The first thing you should do is measure your kitchen and then think about where you want the island to go. Next, decide how much walking space you want to have around the island and then choose the size that best fits in the area and leaves the amount of walking space you require.
2.Take the opportunity to make your kitchen island mutli-functional because there's lots of options to choose from. Just about any appliance can be built into it including cook tops, under-the-counter refrigerators, sinks, dishwashers and trash compactors. Deep drawers provide a place to store bulky cookware and pullout shelves allow for more easy access. Pick a countertop for your island that matches your other counters or make it stand out by using a contrasting material. Also, your choice of cabinetry and decorative elements can make your island into a real quality item, similar to a fine furniture piece.
3.Counter Material Islands come in many kitchen counter materials and you can even get a countertop that will match the countertops in your kitchen. If you can’t get a match you might choose something neutral like butcher block or stainless steel.
With all of the new trends in home design, kitchens have become an important part of the family's living and entertaining space. .Take your time and choose the island that best suits your needs and taste so you are sure to enjoy it for many years to come.
