Adolphus Ludwig. Kitchen Islands. April 22nd , 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.
Complex islands feature a sink and a disposal unit for preparing fruits and vegetables. A chopping board may be pulled out from one end, while another could be on the countertop. The workspace gets its illumination via overhead lights, recessed light or track lighting. Some even have small fridges, microwaves and cookers.
Some islands are for preparing food. Often they have a prep sink or a kitchen cook top in them. This can be a good area to put an under-counter microwave or a wine fridge in also.
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.
There are many different ways you can approach this decision, and since an island takes up a significant amount of floor space it’s worth it to take time to make every element of its design intentional.
This countertop is used primarily for food preparation. Its location allows for easy movement around the kitchen without pushing over guests or cooks. It is an elegant solution to finding usable workspace in your kitchen while creating a pleasant gathering area. You can also use it to divide the kitchen and living room if you have an open-plan house.
From creating more counter space to adding additional seating, we’ve selected a few different kitchen island ideas that will help you get the most out of it. Choose one or combine multiple of the design elements below to create the feature that works best in your room.
