In order to make a kitchen island work, you need a fairly large kitchen space to ensure enough space around the island to move freely. If your space is large enough to accommodate an island, then a kitchen island will provide more counter space & more storage space. In an extremely large kitchen you can create two separate work triangles, or reduce the size of the main work triangle, increasing the efficiency of your design. To help you with the design element of incorporating an island an experienced designer is input will be invaluable.The arrangement of the appliances service supplies may change when you add an island into your design.
Another great way to light up your bar or island is with mini pendant lighting. These have become a very popular choose because they are so economical. There is also a wide variety to choose from. Many lighting companies offer mini pendant lighting in a variety of options like chain hung, rod hung, or cord hung. Many manufactures have also added a wide variety of glass options. Colored glass has become a very popular option that can add a different look to your kitchen.
Once you determine that an island will enhance your kitchen design, you have several additional options to consider. You can create another work space by adding a second sink and dishwasher into your island. This will allow a second cook to work in the kitchen or allow you to prepare two separate dishes without contaminating one with the other. The added counter space provided by your kitchen island will allow you easier food preparation by minimizing clutter and stacks of bowls and utensils.
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.
