Ginevra Giordano. Kitchen Island. September 30th , 2020.
The kitchen island as a stand-alone platform in the middle of the kitchen provides convenience and efficiency by creating more workspace. When the island is located in the center of the kitchen more space in automatically created.
Adding an eating area to your kitchen island is a popular option if you have space. A raised counter, creating a two-tiered island adds useful space to the kitchen while separating the eating surface from the food preparation surface of the island. This type of arrangement is great for families as the children can do homework on the raised surface, while other family members can be preparing a meal. The family can spend time together, yet keep their things separate from each other. The eating area added to an island can add useful space to the kitchen or help to define the kitchen space from other areas of the house.
Kitchen Islands can have some additional design options like breakfast bars and installed appliances which can achieve the `triangle` design of sink-stove-refrigerator that is considered one of the top kitchen design ideas.
Some newer kitchen island ideas include the following features: rolling islands that can be used where a large island wont fit, granite-topped islands, and islands with furniture like features such as pilasters.
Before deciding on any type of kitchen design you need to be certain of the shape. In addition traditional rectangle or square, a rounded or oval island can bring a whole new look to your kitchen.
Kitchen islands work best in larger L, U, or G-shape kitchens. If the kitchen is too small, the kitchen island will become an obstruction and hinder easy movement. The best custom kitchen islands for small to midsize kitchens are a portable butcher block or kitchen cart for food prep or extra storage.
Besides meal preparation, the kitchen can become a gathering area for family and friends if there is enough space. Since so much happens in the kitchen on a regular basis, getting the layout right is important. The kitchen island can serve as an additional eating area, and food preparation can easily be done there. In a large kitchen, the kitchen island can shorten the distances within the working triangle (sink, refrigerator, and range or cooktop) and make it more efficient.
