In order to make a kitchen island work, you need a fairly large kitchen space to ensure enough space around the island to move freely. If your space is large enough to accommodate an island, then a kitchen island will provide more counter space and more storage space. In an extremely large kitchen you can create two separate work triangles, or reduce the size of the main work triangle, increasing the efficiency of your design. To help you with the design element of incorporating an island an experienced designer‘s input will be invaluable. The arrangement of the appliances and service supplies may change when you add an island into your design.
Kitchen islands are a design feature that can make your kitchen much more efficient. But, a word of caution: this is one design item where you should definitely consult with a design expert while you are designing your kitchen. Unless you have lots of experience in kitchen design, or interior decorating, it is hard to get a good feel for how an island will work.
Kitchen islands work best in larger L, U or G-shape kitchens. If the kitchen is too small, the kitchen island will become an obstruction and hinder easy movement. The best custom kitchen islands for small to midsize kitchens are a portable butcher block or kitchen cart for food prep or extra storage.
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.
Integrate one with a Dining Table. An owner of a smaller home sometimes faces difficulties in arranging kitchen cabinets, an island and a dining table due to limited space. Often, a homeowner decides not to use an island in order to allow room for a dining table. Actually, this problem can be overcome by installing a kitchen island with an integrated dining table or a dining counter. Such furniture is usually smaller in size compared to the usual table. With this kind of design, you will no longer face a dilemma whether to install a kitchen island or a dining table. Plus, you can prepare meals while watching your loved ones having their dinner or breakfast close by - a prestige one seldom has with a separated dining table.
