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.
Storage units and smart cabinets are an essential part of the modern kitchen island. They allow you to tuck away the mess, organize your kitchen in a better fashion and make sure that everything you need is handy. If you desire a well-organized space, there are quite a few alluring options, and once again, the choice of shelving units and cabinets should be determined by the specific needs of your kitchen. Small kitchens with limited shelving will benefit from extra-deep drawers and large fold-away inserts that will provide you with ample storage.
If you have a smaller space, around 6ft x 3ft is a comfortable size for an island. If you have to go any smaller than 4ft x 2 ft then it’s advisable to avoid an island altogether, as it will probably be more of a drawback than a useful addition to your kitchen.
