Kitchen Ideas / February 28, 2018 /
Before diving into the smallest details of your kitchen interior design such as decorative knobs, knife block, color choices, you must consider first the space arrangement and the territorial role of the island. The island unit can be used to divide the kitchen and living areas in an open-plan house or in cases to delineate the working from dining zone. It may combine bar chair area with classical dining chair set or even- if space permit- accordingly upholstered sofas. Keep in mind that the kitchen island furniture and style should enhance the room’s esthetic and style as well as the style of any other room it opens up to.
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.
