ccjk. Kitchen Islands. June 06th , 2018.
The new kitchen trend has homeowners doing whatever`s necessary to make room for an island, including moving walls and taking space from other rooms. The island is the new "it" feature for every kitchen. Self-proclaimed cooks and chefs are looking for elements such as flip-down cutting boards or a life to bring heavy mixers and blenders up to a convenient level. Other amenities include a microwave oven drawer effective for saving countertop space, motorized countertops that can adjust to accommodate the height of the cook, and don`t forget the flatscreen television.
Having considered what you want the primary function of your island to be then it is time to think about the many types and styles there are to choose from. From over-sized furniture-like pieces that accommodate the entire family in seating to islands on wheels that provide additional workspace with location flexibility, the possibilities abound. There are even two-level islands that offer a cooking zone and a gathering area all in one, with just enough separation to keep the sauces from the homework papers.
The first thing you have to decide about your kitchen island is what you want it to do. You could choose just to have one that is additional cabinet and work preparation space. There are models available with plumbing so they can come equipped with a sink, possibly a garbage disposal, and a dishwasher. If you prefer, your kitchen island could be designed to support a range and oven. It`s not uncommon to find or build islands with seating like you would with a bar or breakfast nook.
The large immovable kitchen islands may turn out to be a kitchen remodeling job, with the design work and planning that entails. Water, gas or electrical lines may have to be run for this type. It can be used for just food preparation, or sometimes seating may be added with counter stools, so that it has a work area on one side, and seating on the other. Either way, the 360 degree access that a kitchen island provides will make your kitchen a dream kitchen.
there are a couple of advantages of this approach. One is that because the bar is higher than the counter work space, the kitchen clutter is visually shielded from the living area. A second advantage is that bar seating requires the least floor space of any of the seating options.
