The next thing on your agenda is to figure out the style you want your kitchen island to have. Naturally, it should fit in with the rest of the décor in the kitchen. If you have a country style kitchen a distressed wood or finished wood island might be the proper choice. A more modern or gourmet kitchen would be the perfect place for a kitchen island with natural stone or metal countertop. Just like with any other kind of home décor, there are no hard and fast rules you have to follow. It`s your house; you choose what works for you.
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.
Where can I find one? Look online - the best way to buy items is to compare the different models using online resources. Compare the style and panache of the wonderfully pretty Jasmine Block or the very clever and amazingly versatile Cucina Technica Island Cart and see the way each has its own attributes that are very attractive indeed. There is so much to choose from when it comes to style and function that a JB kitchen island will become the must have item for your home.
Kitchen island design options offer so many features, whether it be more cabinets for storage, a sink to aid in food preparation, a wine rack or bookshelf, a stove or dishwasher, and the list goes on. Once you have decided on your island`s primary function, then you can set about choosing the particular design and features to be included that will optimize your time. Whatever the chief function of your island is to be, the necessary items to make it happen should be stored within easy reach. For example, if it is to be mainly used for cooking, then cabinets for pots and pans with drawers for utensils and spices are priority. If food preparation is the ideal chief function of the island design, then space for knives, cutting boards and small appliances such as food processors is what you are after. If the kitchen island in your home is to be a center point for gathering, then seating space and counter space for homework plus food preparation are your top needs. Islands are a very attractive, functional part of kitchen design. Ideally, it can become a warm gathering place for family and friends as well as provide extra working space. After all, the kitchen is the heart of the home!
First of all, you need to figure out the availability of space in your kitchen, or in the area of your home that will be used as the kitchen. If your house does not have a dining room, then your kitchen island must provide space for seating. If you try to use a dining table with chairs in the kitchen, it will appear cramped and crowded. In this case, you should consider an island with seating, and use stools around it especially if the space is limited. This will permit more people to sit around the island on the stools. Stools are also considered more effective because they can seat many more people without taking up as much space as ordinary chairs do. Not only are they effective, but they can also make your kitchen have a vintage touch, for instance. If you have more space in the kitchen, then adding the usual dining seating should work out, as it will not take up space.
