Elizabeth B. Gibbons. Kitchen Islands. December 13th , 2017.
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.
A drop leaf is another feature that you may want to have on your kitchen island. The drop leaf gives you some extra counter space which can be used for either extra seating capacity or extra work space. Any kitchen can always use extra counter space, whether it`s to be used for seating or working. If your kitchen needs storage capacity and work space, the kitchen island is the best way to do it for the least expense.
The first thing you have to decide about your kitchen island is what you want it to do. You could choose just to have one that is additional cabinet and work preparation space. There are models available with plumbing so they can come equipped with a sink, possibly a garbage disposal, and a dishwasher. If you prefer, your kitchen island could be designed to support a range and oven. It`s not uncommon to find or build islands with seating like you would with a bar or breakfast nook.
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.
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.
