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.
Making good use of small areas is all about combining functionality in a space. Get creative with storage options. Use space beneath your island to shelve books or store bottles of wine; add drawers and shelves for baking supplies; install fold-out cabinetry for maximum storage. If you are going to have a kitchen island in a small space, it is important to make the most of the space by using the island for multiple purposes.
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.
If you want the kitchen to be the place, what will you do with the living room? It is interesting to note that the overall design of the modern house indeed changes, and we will certainly see a trend towards a more open plan and appropriate designed spaces, in line with the needs and demands of the true modern family in the future. Moreover, as the functions of our kitchens improve, this space becomes less a purely working environment from a technological point of view.
