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.
Kitchen islands are the hottest new kitchen trend. If you are looking to remodel your kitchen, you should consider incorporating one into your design. Preparing meals becomes so much easier because an island provides extra counter and storage space. If you are not interested in remodeling your kitchen but would like to purchase an island anyway, you need to make sure that you have enough space. Ideally, you will have an L-shaped kitchen that is at least 100 square feet. This configuration ensures that you have room for an island and its addition will not make your space too crowded. I do not recommend adding a permanent island to smaller U-shaped or "corridor" kitchens. There simply is not enough space, but a rolling kitchen cart is always an option.
One of the main features that most people find useful when they wish to have a kitchen island is the ability to have extra storage space incorporated into the final design. If you so wish, you can even have a mobile one, which you can wheel out into the garden for when you are entertaining outside during the summer months.
