The kitchen island is one of the most sought after features in modern kitchens. They can fulfill a wide range of roles and come in many different shapes, sizes, and styles, all of which can fit different settings and requirements. For this reason, there are a number of things to consider when planning a new kitchen island for your home. With careful consideration and proper planning, the island can become the central hub of family life in what is widely considered the most important room in the home. In this article I explore some of the important things you need to bear in mind prior to selecting or designing a new kitchen island.
Consider how much space you need to freely move about the kitchen without feeling cramped or knocking things over. Think about the size of your family or the number of people who like to cook in the kitchen at any one time. If the kitchen is the central point of parties and family life, then you need a lot of surrounding floor space.
Of course, waterfall islands are clearly good from a design point of view, but this is not the only benefit and positive that they have. One of the main reasons that they are a great add in to your kitchen is that they give you some additional space that you can use as a seating space or perhaps even somewhere to eat. Depending on the overhang of the waterfall part of the worktop, you may be able to fit some stools underneath, which means that guests, family or anyone who happens to be in your garden can take a seat.
Even a small kitchen island can accommodate a few stools for meals on the go. Raised countertops have been trendy for several years, but now completely flat quartz countertops are taking the lead as the preferred style. See how these kitchen designs fit in a few spots for seating. Click on the photos below to see full size images of the island seating arrangements.
