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.
A good general rule for enclosed kitchens is to place it in the center of the room. That way it’s equally accessible from all sides and won’t be an obstacle for people walking through. That placement might not work best for all kitchens, however. A perimeter island, for example, might work better with open floor plans. Size and shape are also determined by room’s layout; Allow for at least 36-48 inches between the perimeter of the island and the surrounding cabinets so there’s enough room for people to move around.
Add another dynamic by creating variation in the height of your island. Using the island for multiple purposes, like eating and food prep, will both maximize the utility and make it feel like two totally different spaces. For example, add an appliance to one level (like a sink or stovetop) and create a breakfast bar on a higher tier.
