Darek Seidel. Kitchen Islands. April 25th , 2020.
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.
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.
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.
When looking at modifying a kitchen, it is a good idea talk with a kitchen planner or a kitchen remodeler to help discover what might be possible.
Built in kitchen islands come in a variety of styles and shapes in addition to the galley island. An L-shaped island is large and therefore yields great storage and additional seating space. A downside of this is that it blocks a considerable portion of the kitchen space.
Still not sure what exactly you’re looking for in your own kitchen island, or looking for ideas and inspiration? Read on to see 60 stylish kitchens with islands, each addressing the needs and spaces of each home—everything from wheels to sinks, and cooktops to book storage.
Get the most from your island paradise—use the non-kitchen side as a media center. A television, stereo and all the accessories can fit comfortably within the confines of the cabinetry, and if you have small children, it’s the perfect place to keep them entertained while they remain in view.
