A Kitchen Island is a great way to add style and storage to your kitchen. We’ve all seen the traditional island, possibly with a sink, in the middle of the kitchen. Did you know there are ways to increase the overall functionality and decor of your kitchen by having an island installed? Here are a few not-so-traditional ideas for your new kitchen island if you’re looking to remodel.
Use the island as a dining room table, or use a dining room table as your island! Either way, if your kitchen is too small for a dining area you can make one by having the island pull double duty, that acts as a food preparation area as well as a place for your family and friends to sit and eat; even by adding wheels so that it can be moved when needed. A multi-tiered island can provide a breakfast nook type of area to your kitchen if one is not available. Choose some unique barstools to top off the look, or create an interesting (and surprising) focal point by using an antique table as an island, showing that it’s possible to create a kitchen that’s out-of-the- norm and chic. You might think that you don’t have space in your home to install a mini bar. Think again! Turn an island into a mini bar, saving you from having to spend money on more expensive room add-ons. Have lighting, liquor and wine racks as well as a mini fridge installed in the island to create a fully functional mini bar. Since it’s already in the kitchen, you eliminate the worries of having to transport glassware for cleaning.
When you explore different ideas you will find the perfect kitchen island design for you. If you love traditional, that’s fine, but if you’re like me, and you want something different, think outside the box.
