A kitchen island can be an excellent choice for expanding your counter space, adding extra shelving, or even additional seating. A new or remodeled island can even change the feel of your kitchen, and become a statement piece to your home. There are a variety of styles to choose from, so consider your options, what fits with your needs, and trust your contractor to help you make the right decision.
If you’re looking for extra seating, a big island, or one that incorporates a bar-style counter, might be just up your alley. Other islands incorporate chopping blocks and utility sinks to give you more work-space when creating that big meal. Or combine the two with a multi-level counter. Hide any food-prep work on one side while allowing seating on the other. With this options your friends and family can sit and visit with you while you cook.
Or perhaps you need your kitchen island to fit into an awkward space? Islands don’t have to be square, round or rectangular. They can be designed in any shape you find will work best to fit your cabinetry needs.
With all the options you can match the rest of your kitchen exactly, or change up the finish and counter-top to create a stand out piece. Don’t be afraid to make a statement. Use the cabinet base for exactly the type of storage you need. House your dishwasher, add a wine rack, extra drawers, or a roll out pan rack, whatever works best for you. You can even add glass doors and create that special cupboard to show off your fine china. The options are limitless so you’re sure to end up with an island you love.
The best part of your kitchen remodel is getting to add your personal flair. Once you know what you like your contractor can offer plenty of suggestions to help you bring pzazz to every part, including your kitchen island.
