Before deciding on any type of kitchen design you need to be certain of the shape. In addition traditional rectangle or square a rounded or oval island can bring a whole new look to your kitchen. Whether in a single row kitchen or as part of an L-shape design the kitchen island will be the heart of the whole kitchen. Some basic kitchen design ideas need to be considered.
One of the largest pros to a kitchen island is having that space for friends or family members to congregate in the kitchen area. One can place bar stools, or high seated chairs up against a kitchen island which invites that comfort zone. Most of us are aware that people tend to congregate to the kitchen area, after all it is the heart of the home.
Another trick for creating a mini kitchen island is to combine the space with the sink area. The design above is more of a kitchen peninsula than a kitchen island. However, putting counter space around the sink gives a similar functionality and feel, combining areas to serve and prepare food.
The modern family today is indeed a very different unit to only a few generations ago. In terms of day to day activities each family Member tends to be independent and much more advanced. This is expressed in the family cohesion, their interactions and their daily work, while also uniting themselves as a family unit. It should therefore come as no surprise that the design of the modern family home differs greatly. The trends in the design of the individual spaces within the house must also be kept pace, as they develop to comply with the needs of the occupants.
This isn't true anywhere but in the kitchen. It's now more a living room than the living room! Typically this room today is the typical center of activity, when the whole family is collected, and it is no longer simply functional, but usually isolated from the remainder of the living region. It is, rather, an essential component of the living room and certainly the casual "hang out" location for everyone.
