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.
Take the opportunity to make your kitchen island mutli-functional because there's lots of options to choose from. Just about any appliance can be built into it including cook tops, under-the-counter refrigerators, sinks, dishwashers and trash compactors. Deep drawers provide a place to store bulky cookware and pullout shelves allow for more easy access. Pick a countertop for your island that matches your other counters or make it stand out by using a contrasting material. Also, your choice of cabinetry and decorative elements can make your island into a real quality item, similar to a fine furniture piece.
Another great option to consider is the Kitchen Island with Oak Drop Leaf Top in Black Finish. While it does not have a granite top like the other models, it does offer a sophisticated looking kitchen island. It also features black shelving and cabinets to help showcase a classic look. There is plenty of storage space for anyone who is looking to hide some of their kitchen equipment and products. It also features a table flap, so that you can quickly add more seating if you have guests over. This also makes a great piece of furniture to cook and prep meals on.
