Kitchen islands are a design feature that can make your kitchen much more efficient. But, a word of caution: this is one design item where you should definitely consult with a design expert while you are designing your kitchen. Unless you have lots of experience in kitchen design, or interior decorating, it is hard to get a good feel for how an island will work.
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.
Some interesting additions to kitchen islands that I have seen include wine refrigerators, wine racks, pet feeding stations, trash compactors, or a prep sink. Wine refrigerators are special refrigerators that are programmed to stay at a certain temperature that is perfect for wine storage. The refrigerator is often equipped with racks so that you can store as much wine as possible in the space provided. Prep sinks are small sinks that are equipped with a garbage disposal. They are not meant for cleaning dishes but rather for washing produce and disposing of the refuse from cutting or preparing food for cooking.
