At this stage, you should decide what your island countertop will be mainly used for –is it dining and a breakfast bar the main purpose of it or food prep will be everyday activity. If the first- stools and cantilevered countertop are basic. If you want to combine both functions deciding the shape of the island can be helpful. Think about it- will it be traditional rectangular island style, or a T or L-shaped island that will help you to create a multi-purpose area. For example, T-shaped islands can be useful for prepping food at one end while seating guests and family at the other.
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.
And speaking of lightness and style – here is another unique and charming Kitchen design by DeVol featuring a woven coppiced-beech panels and clear lined silhouette. Simple, functional and elegant this kitchen island can be suited in multiple design arrangements.
Skylights can be an answer to both the storage and lighting problem. By throwing light downwards and outwards, the need for small windows is reduced, freeing up valuable vertical wall space which can then be used for high-rise cupboards. With a galley kitchen, consider installing French windows opening out on to your garden. If you lay a deck right outside the exit you can leave the windows open during the summer, increasing the feeling of space by making a garden room.
