Kitchen islands are the hottest new kitchen trend. If you are looking to remodel your kitchen, you should consider incorporating one into your design. Preparing meals becomes so much easier because an island provides extra counter and storage space. If you are not interested in remodeling your kitchen but would like to purchase an island anyway, you need to make sure that you have enough space. Ideally, you will have an L-shaped kitchen that is at least 100 square feet. This configuration ensures that you have room for an island and its addition will not make your space too crowded. I do not recommend adding a permanent island to smaller U-shaped or "corridor" kitchens. There simply is not enough space, but a rolling kitchen cart is always an option.
Making cookies can even be easier with this process. Fire up the over, and drag on over the island. Roll out your dough, cut out your shapes and create the best cookies on out there. All this can be done with minimal effort, because you are standing next to the stove, giving you the ability to do two tasks at one time.
Materials: Now that you‘ve decided to build a kitchen island, materials are something to consider. There are many materials available to build your island with such as: wood and stainless steel as well as a wide variety of countertop options like quartz or granite that will give your kitchen island an original design. Your materials should be selected to match the rest of your kitchen. A kitchen island should complement the space without overwhelming it or sticking out. Wood can give a kitchen a rustic, chic feel while natural stones like granite and quartz offer your new surface durability and timeless elegance. Stainless steel is a great surface to use for cooking and creating edible masterpieces and marble could be another alternative to a traditional design, depending on your budget.
To help you on your island kitchen designs, you may want to ask the perspective of a professional designer for the measurements of your kitchen island as well as to where you can put it in your kitchen. But if you can do it yourself, it is much better as you can save a great amount of money. Always keep in mind that the kitchen island should enhance your kitchen‘s efficiency and functionality at the same time.
In the beginning they were mostly made of wood. But with the evolution of the industry you can now find them in a variety of materials, these can include everything from stainless steel to tile and of course still wood. It is next to impossible to find a particular style of kitchen that you cannot find a style of kitchen island to match. There are also of course multiple shapes to choose from, gone are the days where it is just a table in the center of your kitchen. There are three main shape types and they are: G, L, and U shapes, these come in different shapes, in all different sizes.
