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.
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.
For small kitchens, you can go in for foldable sides. The size of the upper surface can be easily reduced. These type of islands are usually made up of wood, with some variants made of plastic. The countertops of such islands are not made up of stone, as the weight may spoil the folding mechanism of the table top.
Think of your dining table attached to the island counter where your kids can spend time with you doing their homework or other crafts, while you are cooking and keeping them company. A great idea for large areas, this concept gives the kitchen an elongated appearance.
Among all the designs, this is the simplest which consists of a large trolley that has convenient wheels, that makes it possible to push the island around. These portable islands, sometimes also have additional facilities such as wine storage space, cutlery rack, etc. These type of islands are made with help of wood and plastic as the island has to be light in weight.
