Your kitchen island

0 660

The newest trends in space division allow plenty of space for the kitchen. Most of the times, designers opt for what we call an “open space”. This means a clearly defined area, without being separated by walls and doors. Such kitchens are ideal for both large and narrow houses and need special furniture – kitchen islands.

When planning or designing a kitchen island, keep in mind that this is an area that needs to be highly functional. Also, it needs to have balance and comfort, as well as maximum utility. Here are some tips on how to make the best of it:

  1. Choosing the shape.

The most common option when it comes to shape is definitely square or rectangular. However, if you want something original and your space is generous enough, go for a semicircle or an irregular shape. The most important thing is for the island to perfectly fit into your design (kitchen and adjacent space).

  1. Is it recommended to incorporate the cook-top?

Yes, indeed it is! Think about it: this area will provide the easiest access. Furthermore, this design allows many people to participate in the cooking process simultaneously and, let’s face it, we appreciate all the help we can get.

  1. Does the island have another utility?

Most often, the island is used as breakfast area, but, if arranged properly, it can be transformed in an unconventional dining space as well.

Do not neglect the fact that this type of furniture can accommodate a lot of storage space and organizing will get really easy. It is also very versatile, being easily transformed so that it fits a romantic atmosphere, a traditional design, an extravagant look etc.
