For those of us who have small kitchen, consider an island cart. A kitchen island cart is a small island on wheels you can roll out and use for cooking or buffet storage and, as the name suggests, it can be rolled into and out of the way depending on your needs.
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.
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.
Eating at a kitchen island has become as common as cooking in the kitchen itself. Whether it’s a meal on the go or an intimate, lingering dinner for two, with the right design, the island can be both a convenient and beautiful place to dine. Rule #1: To add sophistication to the island, lower an area of the counter to normal table height. Your dining-chair options will open up tremendously, and you’ll have created a cozy nook to nosh.
If you’re looking to make a statement in your kitchen, installing a Silver Wave marble waterfall island is a sure-fire way to do it. The bold addition gives this simple kitchen an element of sophistication, while bringing the playful pendant chandelier’s colours to life. Traditional French doors contrast the heavy grey and walnut palette, adding airiness to the interior.
Keep it simple while adding value by using an island to significantly increase the amount of counter space in your kitchen. Having more counter space adds obvious benefits: more room for meal prep, multiple chefs and can serve as an eating area. Create contrast by using a different material or color for the island counters than you did in the rest of the room. If your regular countertops are white quartz, try black or a dark stained wood for the island.
Kitchen islands serve a number of purposes. In addition to being a visual anchor in the space, they also help increase the room’s functionality and efficiency.
