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. There are certainly many pros to having a kitchen island. The first pro we will look at is that of extra counter space. Having resided in homes where counter space was at a minimum, the kitchen island was a life saver when cooking for larger gatherings. The second pro would be extra storage space. Who doesnt need extra storage space in a kitchen? One kitchen owned was so small the laundry room next to the kitchen wound up being turned into a pantry as there was next to no storage in the kitchen.

Here are kitchen island ideas to consider when planning your kitchen: 1. 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. 2. Include a ventilation hood overhead to eliminate smoke, steam and cooking odors if your kitchen island is going to have a cooktop. The range hood should extend beyond the cooking area by 3 inches or more on the sides for proper ventilation. Using the correct fan size will ensure that removal happens as intended. Have a fan capacity of about 50 cubic feet per minute (cfm) for each square foot of cooktop area.

One of the largest pros to a kitchen island is having that space for friends or family members to congregate in the kitchen area. One can place bar stools, or high seated chairs up against a kitchen island which invites that comfort zone. Most of us are aware that people tend to congregate to the kitchen area, after all it is the heart of the home. There are some cons of having a kitchen island. The largest one is expense. Placing a permanent kitchen island with running water and electric as many of the islands have can be extremely expensive. If one is doing a kitchen remodel, adding the electric or gas line to an island during a remodel can cost a tremendous amount of extra money. Even without electric, gas, or water, the cost of a stationary island can run into several thousand dollars, which might be better used elsewhere.

Shelves are another aspect of kitchen islands that can be customized. You can have top level drawers and lower level shelves to stores knives, spoons, dishes, cutlery, cans of food and spices etc. The shelves of an island are usually below the counter top and they can be customized to move in certain directions and move at certain angles to store certain objects. Choose a Lighting that Suits You Lighting is definitely another important thing that can be customized to make the island look more complete and also focus the lighting at key areas of your island. Lighting can be directional to concentrate on the dining area or the cooking area. The fixtures also can be designed and customized to bring about a certain look to the kitchen and dimmers can be used to vary the intensity of the lighting.

6. Should your kitchen island be "post legs" open design, or cabinet style? Both of these styles can help to complement any kitchen. When choosing either style, make sure to consider the form and function of your island. For instance, if youre using the island for more than a table, then the cabinet style island would be a wise option. However, if you want the island to be an area strictly to eat and chat-then consider one with post legs. A good kitchen island can help your kitchen look even better than it is. Its basically a way to add extra "furniture" your kitchen for much-needed extra space, so that you can have extra seating or a bigger food prep area. Whether you need more eating space, more cooking space, or both, a good kitchen island can fulfill your needs for you.
