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.
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.
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.
