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.
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 surface allows you to prepare bulky items like dough, or transfer foods from the oven to cool before serving. Its height is usually at the waist level or higher.
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.
The moment you store your groceries, utensils, dishes and electrical appliances in your kitchen, it is clear that despite the abundant storage space, you have very little workspace. Think of the moments you are many cooks in the kitchen; there is literally not enough space. It is for this reason that designers came up with the kitchen island.
