When making plans with your contractor for your remodel, consider how you would like to use your kitchen island. Do you want it to be a place to eat? Will it be specifically for cooking? Maybe it will just be an area will your family and friends will gather so that you can entertain. These questions will help you to understand what kind of island you need for your space.
You may also want to consider islands that float as well. Someone who spends a lot of time in the kitchen can really make use of a floating island. A small island in a small kitchen can be fitted with wheels. This makes it great for cooking and baking. A floating island makes it easy to take things right out of the oven.
There are no rules when it comes to the design of your kitchen island. Work with your contractor to come up with an island design that will best suit your kitchen size, lifestyle, and needs. Create an area that will make your kitchen function more efficiently while adding value to your home.
