If you’ve decided you want to integrate appliances into your kitchen island, you need to plan for function as well as spacing. “If the main sink is in the island, you’ll need a dishwasher and have to decide if the dishwasher is to the right or the left of your sink,” says Justrich. If this is going to be your main prep area, you’ll need trash, recycling and compost areas nearby, too.
An island is a brilliant centerpiece that will instantly lift the appeal of your kitchen. But planning for it is all about putting practicality ahead of aesthetics! And if you are still stuck when it comes to making decisions about the design of your island, it is best to call in some expert help. At the end of the day, it’s all about designing that beautiful kitchen of your dreams…
If you have a lot of room for a wide island, you can have multiple kitchen stations installed in it – for example, a stove and a sink. Most people want to incorporate seating on the island too, although that’s not always a great fit with a cooktop if you have a more formal space.
