A mini kitchen island does not have to be connected to the rest of your kitchen. The design above demonstrates how a smaller kitchen can still feature an island. You simply need to make the kitchen island itself smaller and more minimalist.
Kitchen islands are a tricky item to successfully add to your kitchen design, but well worth considering when you are remodeling your kitchen. You may be surprised at the increase in convenience in meal preparation and added counter space an island will provide. But, it is hard to visualize the space required and the best size for any island addition, so be sure you get all the information you need to make the best decision for your kitchen.
One con that was noted was placement of an island can disrupt the flow of a kitchen. The work-flow in a kitchen revolves around a triangle of refrigerator, sink, and range. An island can actually disrupt the flow of this working triangle, causing more issues in preparation, cooking, and cleanup. It is important to have placement so there is not a dead zone in the kitchen, or an area of countertop that goes unused due to the placement of the island.
Instead of using one large island, consider two smaller islands. This solution operates perfectly and is increasingly popular among luxury kitchen architects. One can prevent the need to walk around the island to access multiple kitchen appliances with two different tiny islands. For example, there is an area which is a prep area; a little sink and chopping area could even be added. The secondary island can then be used to eat or entertain visitors by the family. This practical alternative to a popular issue with luxury kitchens can do you great!
