Placing an appliance on the island may not seem like you are decorating but this serves as both a functional way and decorative way to store a great appliance that you may have. Don't just put any old appliance on the counter area. Instead use your nice fancy stainless steel toaster or blender for the décor. If you are going to decorate with an appliance be sure that the island has outlets or there is one accessible from where the island is located in the kitchen.
Some people install a kitchen island directly out of the box with no modifications or changes and these islands are mainly for extra storage and counter space. You have a large amount of counter space where you can use half for preparing food and the other half to set up a breakfast bar or small eating counter. Other people design their kitchen islands from scratch and then install all the necessary pieces. These islands usually have sinks, appliances, or special features that require plumbing or electrical 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.
