Numerous Functions of a Kitchen Island. A homeowner can decide to build and install a kitchen island for a number of reasons. The kitchen may need more counter space, eating space or storage space. The homeowner may also be interested in adding value and practicality for reselling purposes. Since a these islands can be installed with amenities such as a range top or a sink, the homeowner may be interested in equipping the kitchen with these useful additions. Whatever the purpose may be for the installation of these islands, they are easy to design and install and can add more functionality and space to kitchens.
However, if you are remodeling your kitchen, you must keep the originality of your kitchen and only apply essential elements from the new design that you have chosen, such as only adding stools but keeping other things, or perhaps only rearranging the position of the elements of the existing island. You should also investigate the benefits of kitchen islands with seating and how to achieve it. You can get more information from the Internet or home design magazine to convince you that kitchen islands with seating is a perfect idea.
Consider legs or feet on the island but execute it well. Legs should be sturdily connected with an apron much like a typical table. Feet can be individual feet or a furniture style arched cutout. Hint: If budget constraints do not allow for a complete remodel of your existing space, think about simply replacing the island and island tops and paint the perimeter cabinetry. This can get you much further on a smaller budget and you can have a well designed island. Replace the other cabinetry when you have additional funds.
The normal counter top height of the lower cabinets, including the island is 36". One approach is to install a raised bar area along the living area length of the island. The standard bar height is 42" , making it 6" above the level of the island counter top. Seating required standard bar stools with a seating height of 30". Minimum bar overhang is 12".
there are a couple of advantages of this approach. One is that because the bar is higher than the counter work space, the kitchen clutter is visually shielded from the living area. A second advantage is that bar seating requires the least floor space of any of the seating options.
