Include a ventilation hood overhead to eliminate smoke, steam and cooking odors if your kitchen island is going to have a cooktop. The range hood should extend beyond the cooking area by 3 inches or more on the sides for proper ventilation. Using the correct fan size will ensure that removal happens as intended. Have a fan capacity of about 50 cubic feet per minute (cfm) for each square foot of cooktop area.
Big island. Today more people are entertaining and eating at home so a large kitchen island would be very helpful to have around. It can be built so that it can be a workspace and a place for the children to do their homework and eat breakfast. Some can even be built long and lean so there can be as many as eight seats or more and more space around the perimeter. How long would depend on the space available.
Having a potluck is easier with a portable kitchen unit. No matter where you need the extra counter space it is there and easily movable. Stack all your hot dishes on top of it, and let guests serve themselves. It makes for the perfect buffet setup. Some key pointers to remember when you are ordering your portable kitchen island can help you from avoiding mistakes that could be costly to fix.
First you will need to determine the amount of space you are dealing with. Once you have decided the amount of available room, reduce it by six inches. This can provide you with cushion room in the event the manufacturer is off on their measurements. Bring photos in of your current kitchen cabinets. You‘ll want the new unit to blend in as perfectly as possible. If the design or coloring is considerably off it will create an eye sore that you may find to be a nuisance. Also know your budget you have to work with. There may be features you don‘t need that the sales person will assume you want. Having an idea of what you can afford will help you to determine what the best portable kitchen island is for you.
Additional kitchen island ideas are to consider using shelf space on the sides of your kitchen island for cookbooks, collectibles or storage. A built-in TV works here, especially if it faces the family room. Or a microwave may work well for heating up after-school snacks and cooking foods quickly.
