Landra Schuster. Kitchen Islands. April 26th , 2020.
A U-shaped island is even bigger. This provides even more space but is also one of the largest styles. You probably won’t see this style in a standard-sized house.
And according to a survey by the National Association of Home Builders more than 70% of buyers want an island in their kitchen, and of those, 50% consider it a must-have. Since it’s apparent that adding an island is a sound investment, we’ve gathered 60 of our favorite kitchen island ideas to use for inspiration.
This type of island is much larger than a moveable cart and provides counter space for meal prep and typically a seating area. Built-in kitchen islands that include plumbing and electricity can cost anywhere from $2,000 up.
Built-in kitchen islands are a popular style seen today. A galley-style island is the most common. This option is typically made with the same cabinets and countertops as the rest of the kitchen. The cost varies because of this. If you choose granite countertops, the price will increase. Size of the island is also a cost factor.
Multiple-level islands are all the rage, and for good reason: They’re great at hiding mealprep messes. Actually, the art of disguise isn’t the only reason for a multilevel island. If designed effectively, you also can incorporate different surface materials, such as a marble top for rolling out pie dough, a butcher-block area for chopping veggies and a granite topped space for placing hot pans. Varying heights and surfaces add function and dimension to your kitchen’s design.
Incorporating sinks or stovetops into the surface of the island is one way to spread the workflow throughout the kitchen. Installation can be tricky, so pay attention to details like ventilation and plumbing. This will require running downward (most common in islands) or overhead venting (which can be expensive), and allocating extra space to in-cabinet pipes.
Kitchen islands are common in modern kitchens. Other than providing workspace, they also allow people to sit and eat in the kitchen. They are often the focal point in the kitchen as they are placed in the centre.
