Why Your Kitchen Needs A Kitchen Island. Your kitchen needs more storage and counter space, but how are you going to get it? Here`s a suggestion. How about a kitchen island. There are two kinds to choose from. The large immovable type that has a cook top and sink. Or the smaller kind that are like a kitchen cart but a little larger. These usually have wheels for portability. Either choice will answer your prayers for more storage and work space.
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 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.
There are many sizes and designs of kitchen islands and a homeowner should be sure to measure and examine the current space, color and size before choosing the correct one. It doesn`t necessarily have to match the current counter top and cabinet colors or textures. The latest trend in these islands is to install an island of a different material and color than the rest of the kitchen. This allows your island to stand out as a center piece and become the focal point of the room.
