There are some cons of having a kitchen island. The largest one is expense. Placing a permanent kitchen island with running water and electric as many of the islands have can be extremely expensive. If one is doing a kitchen remodel, adding the electric or gas line to an island during a remodel can cost a tremendous amount of extra money. Even without electric, gas, or water, the cost of a stationary island can run into several thousand dollars, which might be better used elsewhere.
Some features to consider in adding a kitchen island can include the oven, kitchen exhaust hood, electric switches and outlets, and storage and shelves. Finally as for the material of the island counter while you could use the same material for the island counter as you have for the kitchen counter it is possible to consider different materials to create an more interesting look.
The first step to using a kitchen island in a small space is to shrink the counter space. While this may appear to sacrifice usability, you can still retain functionality by leaving just enough space for two or three people to sit and eat.
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!
