There are some cons of having a kitchen island. The largest one is expense. Placing a permanent kitchen island with running water and electric as many of the islands have can be extremely expensive. If one is doing a kitchen remodel, adding the electric or gas line to an island during a remodel can cost a tremendous amount of extra money. Even without electric, gas, or water, the cost of a stationary island can run into several thousand dollars, which might be better used elsewhere.
Maximize natural light by having windows and skylights, and keep kitchen wall surfaces light in color to reflect daylight. Custom kitchen islands work great by using pendant or recessed fixtures to direct light onto the kitchen island and other work areas. Electrical codes will likely require that electrical outlets be located on the sides of fixed kitchen islands, not on the top, to prevent electrical shock.
Portable kitchen islands are units located in the center of the kitchen. Typically they consist of a counter top with drawers and cabinets. As opposed to a standard kitchen island, these units are on wheels and can be scooted across the kitchen with ease. Sometimes referred to as movable kitchen islands, they are a cost effective solution to a normally expensive alternative. Where adding a standard kitchen island involves minor construction and a price tag that can be in the thousands. A portable kitchen island can be inexpensive and with the portability that a traditional island doesn‘t offer, it allows you to move it for easier cleaning, or more room if you need it for certain occasions. You aren‘t limited by the island.
When choosing your kitchen island design, you need to decide what type of features you would like it to have. This choice should be made on what you need to make your time spent in the kitchen go more smoothly. Extra counter space is always beneficial, especially when you are preparing meals for your family on a daily basis. Many people also opt to have extra burners or an extra sink. Drawers and cabinets are usually included in these islands so that you can reach underneath to grab necessary pots and pans. This feature helps keep your kitchen organized.
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.
