4 Style Considerations for Kitchen Islands

Kitchen islands have become essential in today’s kitchens. They provide a family meeting place, additional storage, an extra food preparation surface area, and a convenient serving space. If you’re shopping for a new island, here are 4 style considerations to choose the right kitchen island for you:

  1. Size – Assess your kitchen for the island size that will work best for you. Also, consider how much surface area and storage you want in a new island.
  2. Shape – Kitchen islands come in a variety of shapes to suit your space. Will a long and straight galley island be the best choice for your kitchen, or will an L-shape or U-shape be ideal? It can be hard to imagine what a new island will look like in your kitchen, which is why our team at Carolinas Custom Kitchen & Bath Center is happy to walk you through your options and guide you on the best island shape for your kitchen.
  3. Seating Seating can be a great feature of kitchen islands. For many kitchens, an island takes the place of a kitchen table, providing a convenient space for a casual snack or meal.
  4. Surface – There are endless possibilities when it comes to kitchen countertop options. Current trends allow you to mix and match your countertop surfaces so your island can stand out as a unique feature in your kitchen with an alternative material to the rest of your countertops.

Deciding on a new kitchen island is an important choice. With so many style options available, you’re sure to find the right fit for your kitchen and your needs.
