Elizabeth B. Gibbons. Kitchen Islands. December 04th , 2017.
There are many sizes and designs of kitchen islands and a homeowner should be sure to measure and examine the current space, color and size before choosing the correct one. It doesn`t necessarily have to match the current counter top and cabinet colors or textures. The latest trend in these islands is to install an island of a different material and color than the rest of the kitchen. This allows your island to stand out as a center piece and become the focal point of the room.
But remember, large islands aren`t the best option, as they have a center that`s very difficult to reach and result in wasted space. An island that measures 8 ft. in length by 5 ft. in width is optimal for most. Nowadays, it can be difficult to find the time to get the whole family together. Here`s where the island shines. Children can do their homework while mom and dad prepare dinner while also answering emails, or researching help for the kid`s assignment. The bottom line is that everyone comes together and socializes, like it or not.
How much are they? The price of them varies from type to type and you can pay anything from $250 for a simple yet stylish John Boos stainless steel worktable to a couple of thousand dollars for a more upmarket and very stylish kitchen island with seating included. The one you choose is up to you, but you can rest assured that every JB kitchen island comes with the same guarantee of quality and originality, no matter which end of the price scale it may be.
Especially if you are choosing one of the kitchen island options that has built in water appliances or cooking equipment, you should hire a qualified professional for installation. With something this important, you want it to be done right the first time.
Having considered what you want the primary function of your island to be then it is time to think about the many types and styles there are to choose from. From over-sized furniture-like pieces that accommodate the entire family in seating to islands on wheels that provide additional workspace with location flexibility, the possibilities abound. There are even two-level islands that offer a cooking zone and a gathering area all in one, with just enough separation to keep the sauces from the homework papers.
