Elizabeth B. Gibbons. Kitchen Islands. December 14th , 2017.
Everything and The Kitchen Island. Islands denote isolation, being cut off from others. Not so in the kitchen where the island has become the place where the family and invited guests gather. Designers are responding to demands of increased seating, a larger number of electrical outlets and more storage. By equipping kitchen islands with under-the-counter appliances and electronic controls, these areas can now function as entertainment hubs, homework centers, and charging stations.
The large immovable kitchen islands may turn out to be a kitchen remodeling job, with the design work and planning that entails. Water, gas or electrical lines may have to be run for this type. It can be used for just food preparation, or sometimes seating may be added with counter stools, so that it has a work area on one side, and seating on the other. Either way, the 360 degree access that a kitchen island provides will make your kitchen a dream kitchen.
Don`t be afraid to have just a working island and no seats. If you have ample seating adjacent to the kitchen space, then perhaps a working island with great targeted storage is a better option. Don`t force the seating aspect if you do not have ample room for people to pass by comfortably. Hint: If you can, mock up the island in the proposed space and "live" with it for awhile to see how well it works...or doesn`t. Islands can be a focal point of style in a kitchen as well as a gathering spot for friends and family.
