There is no one-size-fits-all perfect kitchen island; what’s important is that you find a size and shape that works for your kitchen. If you have a large kitchen then the world is your oyster; a big island will fill an otherwise empty expanse of floor space and enables you to position your key appliances closer to each other by installing a sink or hob on your island.
Stools are the most compact kitchen island seating idea, as they slide neatly under the counter without a back protruding into the walkway. But even a simple stool has so much potential for customisation! Choose from natural wood for a classic and minimalist look, or make it more contemporary with metal frames or a plastic seat.
If you have decided that you will integrate your kitchen appliances into the island, you should plan for the function and the spacing. “If the main kitchen sink is on the island, you will require a dishwasher and you will have to decide whether the dishwasher will be placed to the left or the right of your sink. If the island is going to be the main preparation area, you will require compost, trash and recycling areas nearby, too.
