If you are looking to do a complete kitchen remodeling for yourself, or for maximum resale value, don't neglect the kitchen island. Once just a place to pull up some stools so the kids could eat before running to the bus, the island and it's function in the kitchen has changed quite a bit in the last 10 years.
As well as being a functional room for cooking and preparing meals, the kitchen can also be the central hub of many homes, and a place where a lot of entertaining takes place. During a kitchen renovation project, if you have the space, you may want to add a kitchen island. In this article, we will look more closely at some of the features that you can include when you install one in your kitchen.
There are many kitchen island ideas that you can apply to your kitchen for both remodeling and new construction, from DIY projects to simply buying the ideas from kitchen design companies. The first thing you need to do is decide on the design. There are many designs available, but some designs are more popular among homeowners.
The choices are unlimited and depend only on your budget, taste and kitchen space. Kitchen islands are such unique structures and even a simple one with a decent countertop can enhance the look of your kitchen while making it more functional at the same time.
Instead of installing a giant brick structure in the middle of the kitchen to place your groceries, one can incorporate electric and plumbing into the kitchen island. A good island should always have everything within reach. A sink should be nearby for chopping fruits and vegetables. Having an electric stove installed within is also a great idea.
However, if you are remodeling your kitchen, you must keep the originality of your kitchen and only apply essential elements from the new design that you have chosen, such as only adding stools but keeping other things, or perhaps only rearranging the position of the elements of the existing island. You should also investigate the benefits of kitchen islands with seating and how to achieve it.
If your kitchen island contains an oven or cooking top, then it makes sense to install an overhead extractor hood in order to eliminate smoke and odors. If it's going to feature a sink, then you need to install a sink that is big enough and deep enough for you to wash your large pots and pans, and you can even add a waste disposal unit and even something such as a dishwasher.
