Kitchen islands are a tricky item to successfully add to your kitchen design, but well worth considering when you are remodeling your kitchen. You may be surprised at the increase in convenience in meal preparation and added counter space an island will provide. But, it is hard to visualize the space required and the best size for any island addition, so be sure you get all the information you need to make the best decision for your kitchen.
The first thing to consider in designing an island for your kitchen is it's desired chief function. Is it to be a cooking space, a food preparation space, a place with storage? Do you want to incorporate seating space, room for the kids to hang out when eating snacks or doing homework? Factor your answers to such questions into your design in order to find the island that works best for your family.
One of the most popular uses for kitchen islands is as a dining surface. Some islands have two levels, one lower that is nearer to the refrigerator and stove used for meal preparation and the other slightly higher used for dining. This countertop is great for weekday breakfasts, lunches, and after school snacks. Just make sure you purchase a set of kitchen bar stools so your family can make full use of this feature. The beauty of creating your own island design is that you can really incorporate anything you need into your personal island. One thing that experts do not recommend doing is adding a wine rack. Wine should not be placed in an area where the temperature constantly fluctuates, such as the kitchen. You could use the space to store your cookbooks instead.
