Kitchen Islands. Thursday , December 07th , 2017 - 03:47:50 AM
The first thing to consider in designing an island for your kitchen is it`s desired chief function. Is it to be a cooking space, a food preparation space, a place with storage? Do you want to incorporate seating space, room for the kids to hang out when eating snacks or doing homework? Factor your answers to such questions into your design in order to find the island that works best for your family.
A kitchen island can not only serve as extra counter space, but can also serve as extra storage space. A large kitchen that can accommodate a wider kitchen island can include cabinet space. This cabinet space can be useful for a homeowner who doesn`t already have enough storage space n the kitchen. A hanging rack from the ceiling for pots and pans can also be installed once a kitchen island is there to accent it. The bonus storage space that a kitchen island offers is a benefit for the homeowner and a re-sell perk for the home.
Kitchen Islands - Making the Ordinary Extraordinary!. It seems lately when most people are dreaming of their ideal kitchen, an island is high on the wish list. Islands can be an integral part of the design layout and improve overall functionality or they can be an impediment to the flow of the work space. How can you determine if your space can handle an island and if so, how to take it up a notch in design? Carefully consider your floor plan and the amount of overall space you need for an adequate sized island as well as the space around it to maneuver easily. A good island layout functions as a "traffic cop" directing traffic around the primary cook zones and should be a minimum of 30 inches wide. The length is negotiable but I would recommend at least 36 inches. If you do not have at least this amount of "heft" to the island, you risk making it look crowded and undersized at best, and at worse are creating a hip busting, aggravating obstacle to good movement around the kitchen.
