There was a time when kitchens were treated just like every other room in the house, and no special attention was paid to lighting or décor. Many older kitchens just feature a single hanging light fixture, regardless of the size, shape or color of the room.
Provide enough clearance. That should be enough room between your island and kitchen cabinets. Specifically, three to four feet is usually adequate. If you‘re in doubt, provide more space, so that your family will be comfortable around the kitchen island table. In addition, when you put in your island, make sure you measure so that you sure you have enough clearance. This will help prevent mistakes or accidents because there are things that are too close to the kitchen island.
Adding an eating area to your kitchen island is a popular option, if you have the space. A raised counter, creating a two tiered island adds useful space to the kitchen while separating the eating surface from the food preparation surface of the island. This type of arrangement is great for families as the children can do homework on the raised surface, while other family members can be preparing a meal. The family can spend time together, yet keep their things separate from each other. The eating area added to an island can add useful space to the kitchen or help to define the kitchen space from other areas of the house.
Kitchen islands are decorative and also functional compliments to any kitchen remodel. The island can often become the focal point of the kitchen without much effort. When remodeling or redesigning your kitchen, imagine how you would interact and entertain in your new space. These pieces tend to create a more diverse gathering place in the kitchen - one where you can not only entertain and dine, but also prep for cooking, play cards and board games with the family, and of course enjoy all the added storage and functionality that they offer.
hoice of Materials and Colors. Kitchen islands made of wood with marble tops are commonly found in Western houses. While these are very successful to make a rustic-looking kitchen, they are not the only choices for modern homes. For a modern look, be brave and creative by mixing various materials and colors. Some materials that will bring a modern aura to your cooking space, among others are metal, glass and granite. Colors are also an essential thing that significantly affects the look and feel of a space. Solemn, earthy colors such as woody, sandy or other gradations of brown give a classic look, while vibrant colors such as deep blue or metallic colors such as silver can create a more modern appearance.
