With all the time you will end up spending in the kitchen it must be decorated to your liking. It should also be a little spacious so that you have the freedom to move around. Counter area is absolutely essential because the number of appliances and prep material you will have on the counter during cooking is always a lot.
Having a large kitchen also makes the clean‐up process a little easier. Another thing that you cannot do without in a kitchen is cabinet area to store away all your utensils and appliances because keeping them on the countertop can give your kitchen a much‐cluttered look.
If you are facing an area crunch in your kitchen then the best way for you to resolve that is to invest in kitchen islands. These are certain additions that can multiply the area in the room. There are basically three different types that you can choose from. You have the Built‐in type, the portable or cart type and the butcher‘s block. The built‐in type, as its name suggests, is a permanent fixture.
It is basically placed right in the middle of the room. The problem with this type is the installation or the set‐up. In this type, you need to dig up the floor and permanently attach it to the floor. The floor needs to be retied around the island. But this island has extra cabinets and storage area as well as added counter‐area which are very advantageous. And after the one‐time installation process, you don‘t need to worry about it again.
The last type is the butcher‘s block. This type is inspired by the idea of a block of wood used in the traditional butcher‘s shops used to cut meat. Its ”USP” (Unique Selling Point) is that not only does this add to your counter area it eliminates the need for a chopping or cutting board as you can do all your chopping on it directly. These are generally made of very dense or heavy grained wood like teak, mahogany, oak, etc. This makes them very durable and strong requiring minimal up‐keep and maintenance.
