An island is a great place to add a little pop of colour to your kitchen. Have fun with a contrasting countertop or cabinet colour. Seats at the breakfast bar can be bright without having to commit – if you get sick of them or sell the house they can be easily replaced.
Drawers can also be installed all the way around your kitchen island, remembering to leave space for legroom if you’ve chosen to add seating. Drawers can also be installed all the way around your kitchen island, remembering to leave space for legroom if you’ve chosen to add seating.
While you figure out what appliances and features are right for your kitchen island, it is also important that you work within the existing space constraints of your kitchen. Many tend to believe that lavishly large kitchens are blessed because of the available space they offer. While that is often true, huge kitchens also create some unique design challenges. An island that you choose must always be proportional to the size of your kitchen. If it is too big, then you will inevitably feel claustrophobic, and a diminutive island is both ungainly and a waste of precious space.
