How big is your kitchen? If you have a large kitchen and your refrigerator isn’t near the island, you may want a smaller undercounter refrigerator nearby. If you’re installing a cooktop, take the space needed for an exhaust vent or hood into account. Make a list of everything you want in your kitchen island, in order of priority. You may not be able to get everything in your island, but try to get at least your top five features.
If the kitchen is the main hub of your house—it’s where everyone gathers to cook, eat, chat, and even do some work or watch television—any kitchen island ideas make up the heart of that hub. Since the kitchen is a popular spot in the house, you’ll want to keep it functional and organized with plenty of clever kitchen décor ideas.
Do not be fooled: An island does not have to be rectangular. You can conform the shape to better suit your kitchens space and needs or just to make a dramatic focal point. Rounded, L-shape, and T-shape islands are some of the more common substitutes for rectangles.
