Kitchen Islands. Wednesday , July 04th , 2018 - 08:44:54 AM
Most people have an interest in the smaller, portable type. They love the versatility of kitchen furniture that has the storage capacity and counter space of a kitchen island, with the portability of a kitchen cart. Kitchen islands provide much needed storage space for utensils in pull out drawers, and other small tools in open drawers. They also have cabinets under the counter for storing things like pots and pans. Towel racks are a common feature, and some even include a spice rack.
The next thing on your agenda is to figure out the style you want your kitchen island to have. Naturally, it should fit in with the rest of the décor in the kitchen. If you have a country style kitchen a distressed wood or finished wood island might be the proper choice. A more modern or gourmet kitchen would be the perfect place for a kitchen island with natural stone or metal countertop. Just like with any other kind of home décor, there are no hard and fast rules you have to follow. It`s your house; you choose what works for you.
The normal counter top height of the lower cabinets, including the island is 36". One approach is to install a raised bar area along the living area length of the island. The standard bar height is 42" , making it 6" above the level of the island counter top. Seating required standard bar stools with a seating height of 30". Minimum bar overhang is 12".
