Modern kitchen islands are exceptionally versatile and useful additions that make your life a lot easier. They are also incredibly popular and are on top of the kitchen renovation list of most homeowners. Yet, designing the perfect kitchen island takes both careful planning and proper execution. While getting it right can transform your time in the kitchen into an absolute dream, a poorly constructed kitchen island can create a whole new set of problems. The idea is to combine form and function elegantly and to create a design that suits the specific needs of your home.
In the kitchen there aren’t many elements that have the possibility of becoming focal points. Usually the walls are painted in a neutral color, sometimes with an accent wall, the furniture has a uniform look throughout and the appliances also share similar characteristics. Among the elements that usually stand out we could mention the hardware, the lighting fixtures and the backsplash. Countryside kitchen with pitched ceiling and brick backsplash.
The kitchen is the heart of the house, and inevitably you find the family gathering around the kitchen island for a quick bite in the morning or a lovely meal at night. Plan in advance for the seating space that you will need to accommodate you at the island. Many modern islands come with a design that places the countertop for food and drinks a tad higher than the one used for preparing and serving meals. This also allows you to choose a wider range of kitchen bar stools or chairs. Also make sure you take into account the required knee clearance space for sitting comfortably at the island.
