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.
One thing is for sure, after looking at the history of kitchen island furniture the only question becomes "What do we have to look forward to?" Over the last thirty years they have gone from being simple tables to put in your kitchen for extra space, to a vital accessory for your kitchen that can have anything from a stove top to a refrigerator. Will there come a day when a kitchen island is more than just a luxury? Some might say they already are.
Countertop material for the island doesn‘t have to match the rest of your kitchen countertops as long as it is harmonious with the room‘s overall design. You may want to splurge on solid surfacing here, for example, and use laminate on the other countertops. A butcher-block countertop is ideal for chopping, while granite or marble works well for baking purposes and for rolling pastry dough.
Another positive point about an island is that it can be designed or customized to fit the needs of the owner. As mentioned above, many islands can house various appliances, or they can provide the storage space to take the appliances off of the kitchen counters. The kitchen island may also be used as a makeshift kitchen office space. A kitchen island can be somewhere to organize meal planning, cookbooks, or helping a child with homework, while still being able to keep an eye on what may be cooking.
Why shouldn‘t the quality of the furniture in your kitchen be the same as the quality of the furniture in the rest of your house? The quality of most of these pieces is just fantastic, it is important to many that the furniture in your home is of the best quality. In this day and age we consider our homes to be an extension of our personality, and the quality of the things in your home say a lot about the people who live there. Thankfully with the level of competition occurring in this industry, attention to detail has always been of the utmost importance to the competitors in this industry.
