New home buyers are not the only ones that should consider a kitchen island design for their kitchen.Some older homes with an awkward kitchen floor plan with limited space can also benefit from a kitchen island design idea. Closed off kitchens have been transformed into more open looking kitchens by lowering existing walls half way to forms islands between the kitchen and nearby living space.
Adding an eating area to your kitchen island is a popular option, if you have the space. A raised counter, creating a two tiered island adds useful space to the kitchen while separating the eating surface from the food preparation surface of the island. This type of arrangement is great for families as the children can do homework on the raised surface, while other family members can be preparing a meal. The family can spend time together, yet keep their things separate from each other. The eating area added to an island can add useful space to the kitchen or help to define the kitchen space from other areas of the house.
This type of lazy lighting work can be frustrating for those who view the kitchen as a focal room of the house, meant to be enjoyed by family members of all ages and used for a variety of different purposes. There are improvements that can be made to any kitchen that will give it more functionality and appeal, and lighting is one of the most important.
