Waldo Gaertner. Kitchen Islands. April 22nd , 2020.
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.
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.
An increasingly popular island-design trend is the ”unfitted” look. Translation: The island looks like a piece of furniture, rather than a kitchen-cabinet component. Turned legs, a different counter surface and other furniture-style detailing can give the island this distinctive appearance, which is often accentuated by placing a colorful area rug beneath to soften the typically hard surface underfoot.
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.
This surface allows you to prepare bulky items like dough, or transfer foods from the oven to cool before serving. Its height is usually at the waist level or higher.
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.
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.
