You will also need to consider how many seats you can fit at your dining space because it is important to leave enough room between seats so people can eat comfortably -without rubbing elbows, – if possible. And at last, one important note when discussing size – no island countertop should be more than four feet wide so that you can, without stretching, reach the middle of it.
We do realize that in confined urban living arrangements large kitchen is not allayed an option and sometimes not even a necessity. People who like to cook but rarely do so may enjoy taking the challenge of improvising in small kitchens. Here are some examples of small kitchen settings that do not lack style, trendiness or aesthetic appearance.
It is interesting that the blue hues and tonalities give to the certain kitchen vintage or rustic charm and even when the set is contemporary in its appearance and functionality like in the case of Metalwood by Key Cucine – the vintage hint is present. Here the dark shades of gray and a new color shade vino (based on Marsala, Pantone Color of the Year 2015) entwine in one cozy arrangement that includes vintage hints of the design. The kitchen Casa Vino by Rational combines all the advantages of a modern high-tech lifestyle with “old-fashioned“ cozy living.
Essential for the final outlook of the space is also the material for the surface of the island countertop. It may vary from a classical, rustic, wooden style to ultra-modern stainless steel appearance. When choosing the design and material for the countertop you should keep in mind some particularities of the different surfaces. The marble is always gorgeous but can be easily stained. If intensive cooking and chopping is planned- reconsider wood- it can be easily harmed. Solid material that can withstand any cooking activity is granite –it’s dark with specific appearance but always can be balanced with appropriate design solutions. Stainless steel and aluminum are always apt choice for contemporary kitchen islands designs.
