Allow adequate countertop space on both sides (left and right) of the kitchen island if a sink or cooktop will be used. Include at least 15 inches of countertop space on each side, and if your kitchen is large enough, allow even more space. You can never have too much countertop space in a kitchen. Also, rounded countertop corners help protect everyone from bad bruises -- this is true about all kitchen countertop corners.
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. 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.
Shape and Size: Since the kitchen cart also needs to be stored somewhere in the kitchen temporarily, you need to keep the space of your kitchen in mind while choosing the right Stainless Kitchen Island for yourself. There are numerous shapes and sizes of kitchen carts and islands available in the market including the custom sizing options, so that you can choose the perfect one for yourself.
Material of the Kitchen Cart and Island: They are available in a wide variety of materials including wood, stainless steel or even granite tops. While the stainless steel carts and islands are the easiest to maintain as they do not get scratched or stained very easily, the wood or tile tops are also durable. You need to keep in mind the overall look of your kitchen while choosing the material of the cart or island. For example, if you have a wood finishing in your kitchen, then an oak wood kitchen island or a white kitchen island would be the best choice for you.
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.
