This a pretty unique idea, a small refrigerator within the kitchen island. This design, is slowly becoming popular, as the refrigeration is a perfect storage space for fruit and drink. It is also an excellent place to store beer or champagne. At times, this refrigerator is also used as a wine refrigerator. No need to go down to the wine cellar every time!
Though an island counter should ideally blend with the rest of the design, there is no harm in giving it a dash of color to have it stand out a little. The idea is to strike a balance so that it looks like a part of the décor, yet has its own identity amid the rest of the kitchen.
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.
In the modern era, cities began to grow at an alarming rate. One of the negative effects of the industrial revolution was that a huge number of people began to migrate to cities, which led to an acute shortage of space. The architecture and civil engineering trends started changing according to the need of time and homes started presenting in different styles.
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.
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.
