“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.
A dishwasher can also be built into an island, saving space in other areas of the kitchen for additional storage. Please bear in mind that you may need access to gas, plumbing or electricity to power these appliances.
Set your island apart from the rest of the kitchen with a one-of-a-kind antique cabinet. From old dressers to beautiful antique bookshelves, using old furniture to create a stylish kitchen island is not only an interesting way to decorate your kitchen space, it’s also an affordable one.
Some of Fenimore’s favorite elements are deep, pull-out drawers for pots and pans, and drawers with mechanisms that lift a mixer or other small appliance up and out for easy use. Also: drawers designed to hold containers of spices, and deep drawers holding metal containers for serving utensils.
