According to the National Association of Home Builders, kitchen islands are one of the most popular kitchen design features among today is consumers. The NAHB also reports that buyers of new homes have also indicated a desire for kitchen islands as well. Actually some 80% of homebuyers consider a kitchen island to be an absolute must.
There are also kitchen islands which can be moved as they are on rollers. This can be a benefit if the kitchen is small enough a stationary island could get in the way. The moveable island can be put into place when working in the kitchen, then moved when the tasks have been completed.
Kitchen islands have different shapes. Some may have the letter L form. Others may have a square, round, oval or rectangular shape. Either way, you can choose your own style and shape as long as it is convenient and easy for you to use. Aside from that, it is very important that your island should be well lit so that you can work properly in your kitchen. Kitchen islands can be built to suit small kitchens, large kitchens and even can be placed outdoors.
However, tropical destinations are not the only type of island we can use to upgrade our lives. Adding a kitchen island is a simple way to enhance any home, and are no longer the preserve of those with swathes of floor space to spare.
Kitchen islands used to be the area where friends and family would gather as well as providing that extra counter space we cooks love so much! Kitchen islands are now not just an area to have extra counter space. They can include a stove top, prep sink, small fridge, microwave, wine cooler, bookcase, and numerous other items for the kitchen.
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.
