The island can also double up as a dining table if it is wide and long enough. This eliminates the need for a separate dining table, and allows you to integrate a living space without much effort.
If equipped with proper sitting arrangements, this design will provide great ambiance for the regular coffee breaks as well. If you are revamping the kitchen, this design will cost you the least and give the kitchen a classy look as well. So, if you have less space in your kitchen and cannot incorporate a separate breakfast bar, this is the design for you.
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.
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.
This is one of the best options for maximum utilization of resources. It allows sufficient amount of leg space and ease to sit down and dine. The table is of the level of a dining table. If you have limited resources, use a farm table as a breakfast bar. This arrangement, however, will not provide space for cooking. Once you are done with having your food, the table can be used for cooking. A homely and inviting look is imparted to the kitchen.
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.
