Many kitchen islands can be created with natural woods such as, Northern Maple, Red Oak, Poplar, Birch, and plantation grown exotic woods. Other kinds of kitchen islands are constructed of stainless steel, or wood combined with stainless steel.
Kitchen Islands have become so popular that this has even led to the creation of unique design styles of their own. A kitchen island can have the same design as the main counter and cabinets or it can have its own unique design.
Another positive point about an island is that it can be designed or customized to fit the needs of the owner. As mentioned above, many islands can house various appliances, or they can provide the storage space to take the appliances off of the kitchen counters. The kitchen island may also be used as a makeshift kitchen office space. A kitchen island can be somewhere to organize meal planning, cookbooks, or helping a child with homework, while still being able to keep an eye on what may be cooking.
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.
When doing a complete remodel of a kitchen, something important to consider before paint colors or cabinet finishes is what kind of functionality you want your kitchen to have. The standard kitchen activities such as cooking, cleaning, and storing food are givens, but what kind of entertaining would you like to do in your kitchen? If you want a kitchen that can serve as a space for more than simply dining, then a kitchen island is something you will definitely want to consider.
Provide enough clearance. That should be enough room between your island and kitchen cabinets. Specifically, three to four feet is usually adequate. If you are 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.
