The raised part of the counter is suitable for serving and eating. On the other hand, the lower tier is perfect for storing dishes, cups and placemats. Additionally, hot meals can be safely secured in the lower area of the countertop, preventing accidents and spills.
“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.”
In smaller kitchens, an island unit could potentially make a cramped kitchen feel full and cluttered. To create an illusion of an airy space, choose light colors on the surrounding cabinets and countertops.
Although the surface of the kitchen island is suitable for cutting and chopping, appliances add value by fully utilizing the middle-of-the-kitchen space. To truly maximize the use of your island, consider installing a stove top directly into your kitchen island or purchasing a mobile cooktop.
