The open-concept kitchen is very popular for home improvement in the United States. In most of the families who have a large kitchen area, they will choose to have a kitchen island. An open-concept kitchen with a kitchen island is very reflective of the owner’s high-quality lifestyle. Therefore, the kitchen designer not only needs to meet the basic functional requirements but also plan to design a kitchen island to create a high-quality space. The kitchen island concept is very popular. So many families want to have it even though they don’t have enough space. Below we show you how to reasonably choose the kitchen island.
The layout of the kitchen island is very important
The kitchen island is a chef's operating station which is placed in the middle of the kitchen. The position of the kitchen island is meaningfully designed by the room type, pattern, and size. That is the way to create more possibilities for the kitchen.
The type of the kitchen island
There are two forms of the kitchen island. The first one is the whole island and the other one is a double-sided island. Both are the most common types. Items can be placed in both directions. A double-sided island with a double-sided design makes the kitchen space more elegant and luxurious. The kitchen island’s design refers to the owner’s style and aesthetic
Single-sided kitchen island only has one side/direction for placing items. In most cases, it is spliced with the adjacent cabinet. The single-sided kitchen island not only meets the functional needs but also simplifies the functions of the kitchen. The unique kitchen island design shows the owner's simple but high quality of life.
How small spaces are arranged on the kitchen island
If you want to increase the living room and reduce the space of the kitchen and dining room, then the integration of the dining room and kitchen will be your best choice. Usually, the single-sided kitchen island is the most suitable for use in this space. If the kitchen space is small, using the connection space of the dining room and the kitchen can maximize the function of the kitchen island. Using the special features to turn the kitchen island into a kitchen operating table and dining table makes the kitchen island acting as a partition or space node.
If you still prefer to have an independent kitchen island, reduce the size of the kitchen island and the width of the kitchen aisle can also bring you a perfect kitchen island style. You can also set up a cooktop and sink in the middle of the kitchen island. This not only enriches the function of the kitchen but also brings you a comfortable life.
