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.
When you choose to have a multifunctional island, adding shelves and drawers is also essential to place in various dining accessories and kitchen tools. A well-planned and smartly-designed island is sure to make your kitchen much more than a simple cooking space. All the best!
Choosing the best from all the available designs can be a difficult task, since every design appears attractive and suitable. Hence, follow the three-step process of selection, first analyze your need, secondly, fix your budget, and finally, decide the dimensions.
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!
All in all, these designs can be really useful, only if they are planned and constructed well. The kitchen island helps in utilizing the space in the kitchen effectively and also provides the much-needed extra storage space.
The first thing to consider is the area available for the installation. Start by measuring your kitchen. While doing this, don‘t count the total area, measure only the available free space. This means excluding your counter, appliances like the fridge, furniture such as the cabinets, and any other items occupying the floor area. Now, you have to fit the island in this area, accordingly opt for the size. Always remember that you need to keep enough space to move around the island.
