The materials used in the island’s worktop surface will be dependent on a number of factors. These include whether you want plenty of food preparation space or you prefer more dining surface space, and more choices besides. There are also aesthetic considerations relating to the decor style of the kitchen as a whole and how certain surfaces will look. There are many materials to choose from including granite, quartz, ceramic, wood, glass, stainless steel, and laminate. You can have more than one worktop surface material on any given kitchen island, to suit the different functions of those particular surface areas. Costs of the material can vary significantly however.
Not all kitchens are designed to hold kitchen islands. A lot depends on the size of the interior space but there’s also the arrangement of the existing or new kitchen. There are G-shaped kitchens, L-shaped kitchens, U-shaped kitchens, and galley kitchens, and many of these don’t suit having an island in the middle. A G-shaped kitchen, which contains a peninsular section, might make the interior feel more crowded than it ideally should. A more open-plan kitchen-dining space however, where wall-based cabinets are at a premium, might benefit hugely from the addition of an island.
With such a wide choice, it’s vital to select lighting that matches your kitchen island’s style and the activities associated with this area. An ultra-modern kitchen will usually benefit from similarly ultra-modern lighting. A more traditional island, will likewise benefit from more traditional-style lighting.
Two-tone cabinetry is a big trend. It’s where one color of cabinets (usually white) is paired with another (blues and greens are most popular). You’ll see this trend used on kitchen islands where the island is often turned into a focal point by painting it a contrasting color.
