Kitchen islands are common in modern kitchens. Other than providing workspace, they also allow people to sit and eat in the kitchen. They are often the focal point in the kitchen as they are placed in the centre.
Just as they are one of the most sought-after vacation spots, islands are now the most frequently requested kitchen-design element. With the vast array of design options out there, kitchen islands can be incredibly versatile, expand your workspace and infuse your kitchen with personality. So take a tour. The adventure's about to begin.
Nothing says the perimeter of your kitchen island has to be symmetrical. Have a little fun when it comes to the shape. Whether it's crescent shaped, wavy or completely indefinable, if it suits your taste (and fits your kitchen and your budget), go for it.
According to Cost Owl, you can purchase a kitchen cart for around $200 and up, depending on the features and quality. Choosing a higher-end cart will significantly increase the price.
Many timber home owners are finding that when it comes to designing ample kitchen space, one island simply isn't enough. Dual islands with designated work zones and specialized storage areas are cropping up more and more, giving the kitchen ample surface space for multiple chefs to perform their culinary magic.
This type of island is much larger than a moveable cart and provides counter space for meal prep and typically a seating area. Built-in kitchen islands that include plumbing and electricity can cost anywhere from $2,000 up.
