Counter space in the kitchen is essential for easy meal prep and storage. Kitchen islands expand the available room to chop vegetables, prepare dishes and hold hot food. Therefore, one of the most important aspects of a kitchen island is the counter space.
“We’ve seen a lot of the dark blues and grays and greens, in reaction to all the white kitchens we were seeing for a while,” Burnham says. “Maybe mix things up. Keep all the countertops the same, but maybe the perimeter cabinetry is one color and the island cabinetry is a different color.”
“It shouldn’t literally be an island off by itself,” Burnham says, “but it shouldn’t be too close to perimeter countertops either.” Other important questions: How many people do you want to seat? Leave plenty of depth for people’s legs when they sit on bar stools or seats at your island.
Think of how you are going to use this area: will you eat a quick dinner, sort through the mail or prepare the delicious salad that pairs with your signature dish? A large kitchen countertop will allow you enough space to arrange your ingredients neatly and keep things organized.
