You first need to decide the reason of installing the island. The plans will vary according to your needs. Do you need some extra workplace? Are you opting for it so as to have extra storage? Do you just want one for enhancing the look of your kitchen? If you want it just for giving a grand look to the room, all you need is some classy material for making this. You can opt for the most stylish designs, which might not have many storage options.
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.
If you need storage, opt for one with lots of drawers and closed shelves. The accessories to the island are also important, like a stove, sink, etc. Are you planning to place a microwave over it? Are you going to have stools around? One idea is to fix the electric switches and outlets for the appliances on the side walls of the island, which provide great convenience. Most of the time the exhaust hood is also included depending upon its usage.
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.
How many times do you crave for having hot, freshly prepared food and also serve it to your family? Several times, I guess. However, the thought of running back and forth to the kitchen to fetch food may tire you. Adding a breakfast bar to your kitchen will not only serve the purpose, but also add that zing to it. Also, your family and friends can sit comfortably and enjoy a delicious meal.
