It is said that the kitchen is the heart of the home which is why it is important that they are as functional as possible. After all, it can be difficult for even a small family to navigate a poorly designed kitchen that does not offer a lot of storage for food products or work space for food preparation. Luckily, an island is a very popular way to improve the layout of a kitchen and are suitable for a variety of different properties. Read on as the team here at PS Contract go over some of the benefits that they can provide…
How much additional space does a kitchen island offer?
A kitchen island is often designed with the size of a property in mind which means the amount of space that is achievable can vary from property to property. With this said, most homeowners tend to use the extra space as a food preparation area because there is typically enough room to arrange the ingredients without causing unnecessary clutter which allows the workspace that surrounds the kitchen to remain clear.
Can a kitchen island be used as seating?
Another way that a kitchen island can be used is as additional seating for unformal mealtimes. In fact, these types of designs are incredibly popular with families who tend not to eat on the same schedule. Interestingly, the design often calls for a larger island in order to ensure that there is enough room for each person to be seated comfortably, however they are an effective way of utilising the space available in a property that may not be large enough for a separate dining table.
Are kitchen islands aesthetically pleasing?
The most effective aspect of a kitchen island is the fact that the counter top material will generally match the counter top that is used on the other surfaces as this creates an aesthetic throughout the property. In fact, it is vital that the design of the island is synonymous with the design of the kitchen, down the style of door handles, in order to ensure that it isn’t an eyesore. After all, they can be incredibly aesthetical when implemented properly by an experienced interior designer.
