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.
If your kitchen and living area are combined, then this is the best design. You can also use this instead of a separate dinner table. This additional piece of furniture will give you extra working space. Some designs also have the sitting arrangement facing the living room. However, be careful while choosing the design, as the entire look of the living area will change due to this addition. A waterfall island with an extended top can also be an option.
How about combining your personal bar with the kitchen island? It can save a lot of space and also give an elegant look. Bar top kitchen islands can be used to place your wine bottles and stemware along with the food served. Some islands are equipped with cabinets for storing all the bar accessories, and also provide enough working space. You can also place a wine rack on the island top for your guests.
If you want to customize the design, try having the counter in various shapes. Circular, wedge-shaped, angular, perfectly square, or long and rectangular with a rounded or a semi-circular edge is another great way to add that style and dynamism.
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.
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.
