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.
Whether you intend to cook at the kitchen island or not is a choice that you need to make pretty early in the planning stage. If you plan on adding cooking amenities, you must take into account the additional costs and design constraints that come into play because of the plumbing and the additional gas line. A kitchen island that doubles as a cooking station will also need a few smart appliances incorporated into its design. You might have to forgo a bit of shelf space for that oven, dishwasher and maybe even the small fridge, but it will be well worth the sacrifice.
Larger kitchens are best served with islands that feature display cabinets and stylish shelves with glass doors. Since creating essential storage space is not a priority here, you can showcase your lovely china collection or the wonderful lineup of cookbooks you own!
