Simply put…yes. Kitchen islands are normally the main work and gathering spot in the kitchen, as a result, a lot of thought goes into them. Anybody who has a good sense of proportion and who also takes care of the planning for the proposed uses of the island can easily figure this out. But that is not everybody. A kitchen cabinet designer can assist, particularly when related to more than just having a working kitchen. Give us a call and our designer on staff will be able to help you through the design process.
A countertop for the kitchen island should not just blend in with the style of the kitchen and its existing theme, it also must reflect your own cooking skills and culinary taste. Add a butcher block if you are planning to utilize the island for food preparation, while a classy marble countertop is perfect if baking consumes most of your time at the island. Stainless steel countertops are both sturdy and durable, and quartz is an equally popular choice in modern kitchens.
"Use the island as an opportunity to add bold, contrasting, unexpected, or unusual materials," cabinetry designer Kevin Ritter says. Your island base is a good place to start. A dark wood finish or color really stands out against a room full of otherwise light, neutral cabinetry. If your perimeter cabinets are plain in design, try an island with embellishments, such as curvy corbels, crown molding, or turned legs, for a subtly grander statement. Even something as simple as switching up the islands hardware can make for a distinct change in character.
