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.
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.
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.
Some islands are for preparing food. Often they have a prep sink or a kitchen cook top in them. This can be a good area to put an under-counter microwave or a wine fridge in also.
This countertop is used primarily for food preparation. Its location allows for easy movement around the kitchen without pushing over guests or cooks. It is an elegant solution to finding usable workspace in your kitchen while creating a pleasant gathering area. You can also use it to divide the kitchen and living room if you have an open-plan house.
Built in kitchen islands come in a variety of styles and shapes in addition to the galley island. An L-shaped island is large and therefore yields great storage and additional seating space. A downside of this is that it blocks a considerable portion of the kitchen space.
