When you choose to modify your kitchen, there are many choices available to you. For most people, cabinets and countertops are primary on their list. While certainly important, adding an island to your kitchen will add many unique features to your newly remodeled kitchen.
An island in a kitchen can be an oasis to help keep your kitchen organized and clutter‐free. Many kitchen remodelers are adding them and are quite pleased with the result. An island in your kitchen can really be more than just an organizational tool.
If you are an active cook, an island can also provide much‐needed counter room. This can be useful to create an additional food preparation area. Most cooks prefer to have ample counter room and this should be a primary consideration.
A kitchen island could be an ideal area for a butcher block as well as a breadboard. You can also use your kitchen island to store knives and other kitchen utensils. An island may be the ideal location for a food processor, bread maker or beverage station. Other cooks may prefer to use their island for an additional sink.
You are not limited to how you will use this room. Get creative. Imagine all of the different ways your family could possibly take advantage of this newly created area.
Kitchen islands can be fashioned in a number of ways. The shape and positioning of the island will depend on the amount of room you have to work with. They come in a variety of styles and can be purchased pre‐made or a custom kitchen island can be created on‐site.
Another consideration should be the type of top used. The same type of material as the other countertops in the kitchen be should always be your primary consideration. You can also use different materials, as long as the top fits in with your overall project. Granite or other material can be used as well.
An added feature of a kitchen island can be the amount of storage available under the counter. You may want to create finished cabinets underneath or other types of storage choice.
The most vital contemplation for your kitchen island is that it fit‐in with the basic project and usability of your kitchen. The key is: usability. Too often islands are added because they look good. Remember in projecting your own kitchen, there will be real people who will be using it daily.
