These plans will definitely help you to beautify your kitchen. An island is surely the focal point of the kitchen and it gives a smart look to the entire area. So, making it the best and choosing an elegant design is essential.
You first need to decide the reason of installing the island. The plans will vary according to your needs. Do you need some extra workplace? Are you opting for it so as to have extra storage? Do you just want one for enhancing the look of your kitchen? If you want it just for giving a grand look to the room, all you need is some classy material for making this. You can opt for the most stylish designs, which might not have many storage options.
Portable islands are the latest pieces in the world of kitchen furniture and decor. Let me tell you that these offer you a movable, often compact kitchen island which can be used in multiple ways. The piece can be moved to any place in or out of your cooking space which is the best part of its design. What‘s more, the same can be used as a serving trolley or a breakfast bar as well. The compact bar stools are best paired with this compact design if the island is also a small breakfast bar. Make sure the same has good quality wheels which lock.
One of the common trends that has been introduced, is the clubbing of the living room and the kitchen. This kind of architecture not only saves space but also makes the entire area look huge and roomy. Theoretically the surface area of the rooms remains same but the psychological effect is excellent. A kitchen island is a perfect piece of furniture that fits into the center of a such room.
Raised islands have an elevated area for placing dishes, food, glasses, etc. Generally, the raised top is about 18 inches wide, which is needed to serve food and cook with enough space. Also, the cooking area remains undisturbed. Some other designs have sufficient height to hide your sink and cooking area. It‘s great if you have frequent visitors, as there is plenty of space available for serving food. Also, if your cooking area is messy, it will be unnoticed!
When other elements are finalized, it‘s time to look at the material to be used. This will mainly depend on your budget. If the budget is not a problem, you can go for the best material for making one. There are also those available at a lesser cost. Perfect laminate or wood finish, decorative drawers and cabinet handles, and an elegant counter top will give a posh look to the island. Make sure that the counter top is exactly the same as your existing kitchen counter top. Also the laminate used needs to match the existing cabinets and furniture in case of remodeling. For outdoors consider the type of outdoor furniture placed around. The counter top will essentially be a few inches larger than the base. Make sure the borders and corners are well finished.
