3 New Takes On Your Kitchen Island Design

By David Maslow

When revising the design of your kitchen, you must consider the kitchen island. Once you’ve decided to include it in your plans, the kitchen island options must also be explored. Kitchen islands aren’t particularly attractive, what with their rather boring plain shape and predictable forms. This feature of your kitchen can be so much more than it may appear at first glance with a little inspiration. Listed below are some great ideas about redesigning your kitchen island.

One aspect of the island is that it adds much more usable space to your kitchen. It adds a center to your kitchen and could serve as a focal point for social occasions that would not be available without it. Increasing the volume of your island is one way to make your kitchen unique. You can make it big enough to serve dinner for your family or just make it fit the space available in your kitchen. You could even make it big enough to seat eight chairs around it for company. This increases the possibilities for your kitchen and the experience you have in it. With the added space you have even more space to work with.

A common practice is using the space under the bench tops for shelves and drawers, however, you can choose to freshen up this area and make it truly personalized. Showcase your wine taste or a collection of your favorite china to express your interests. A rack to hold your recipes and cookbooks could be installed in that space as well for easy access during preparation for meals.

Next, you usually find kitchen islands are stuck in one place in the center of the kitchen, but it doesn’t always have to be that way. Installing wheels to your kitchen island gives you’ve got a portable, fully functional tool. The kitchen island’s wheels can allow you to place it wherever you need it in the kitchen. If space is your arch enemy in the battle to have a more spacious kitchen, try using a trolley or a table on wheels in place of a kitchen island to realize the new possibilities in your kitchen.

Although these are just a few takes on kitchen islands, they can revamp your entire cooking space, giving you more possibilities. Whether you’re in a pinch for space or just ready for a new look, these kitchen island ideas can produce great results for your kitchen experience.
