Now, stationary islands are the best solution if your kitchen offers a larger space. This means that you can get in a full-sized island that perfectly works as a dining table as well. All you need is a nice glass or granite countertop and pendant lights suspended from the ceiling right above this breakfast bar. Of course adding up the dining essentials to the countertop needs no mention. Now line up the chairs and get set to enjoy your food right here! A style having half part dedicated for dining and half for other work also works well. In this case the dining corner can have an empty base that offers enough leg room while you sit on stools and dine here. Only the other half of the island can have drawers and shelves below it.
The L-shaped island is an extension of your kitchen cabinet. You will need to plan this piece of extension while building the cabinet itself. These cannot be incorporated later on. Also, they are not mobile. This island uses minimum space, with the breakfast bar attached to the rest of the cabinet. This makes the room look spacious.
This a pretty unique idea, a small refrigerator within the kitchen island. This design, is slowly becoming popular, as the refrigeration is a perfect storage space for fruit and drink. It is also an excellent place to store beer or champagne. At times, this refrigerator is also used as a wine refrigerator. No need to go down to the wine cellar every time!
Nowadays, you can see islands in almost every kitchen. The addition of this element is beneficial in many ways. It increases the workspace and helps you in better arrangement of the appliances. While planning and setting them in your kitchen, you need to consider a few things such as the available area, budget, island size, designs, etc.
Add a wine rack on one side of an island in an open kitchen, and a side that shows in the living or dining room. As a design element on its own, you don‘t need to do much to make it stand out. Further, you can include open shelving and have the cabinets below the island covered with glass doors to give it a unique look.
There are almost countless uses of this piece of kitchen furniture which, generally, has a smooth flat top surface and excellent storage space. People tend to used the kitchen island for storage, as a dining table, cutting surfaces, etc.
