Things to Consider When Designing Kitchen Islands

Kitchen IslandsFunctionality is a big draw to installing kitchen islands in a home. As you design your island, think about what you want to use your island for. Are you mostly just looking for more surface area to do prep work on? Would it be helpful to have a sink installed in the island– either the primary sink or a smaller, secondary sink? What about a dishwasher? Or would you rather have the space for extra cabinets and storage? Open shelving for storage is becoming a more popular trend for kitchen islands. What about a bar to eat on? Do you want to have room for two or three people to sit at the bar?

The options for kitchen island design are nearly endless. You’ll have to take into consideration the setup of your kitchen and placement of the other appliances. With so many possibilities, it can seem a little daunting.
