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.
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.
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!
The designs can be as fancy or as minimalistic as you want them to be. They depend on your choice, and the space available around. Keeping these two factors in mind, you may choose from any of the following ideas.
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.
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.
