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.
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.
One of the common trends that has been introduced, is the clubbing of the living room and the kitchen. This kind of architecture not only saves space but also makes the entire area look huge and roomy. Theoretically the surface area of the rooms remains same but the psychological effect is excellent. A kitchen island is a perfect piece of furniture that fits into the center of a such room.
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!
A two-level island can beautifully utilize the concept of multiple surfaces. A level made of wood that is higher than the granite work surface serves as a small breakfast table, and gives it a dynamic look.
