Maximize the Usage of Your Kitchen Island

When deciding to do a kitchen makeover, one option is to replace your stainless steel kitchen island with a wood-based, granite counter surface island which withstands damage from heavy falling objects, isn’t impacted by chopping or pounding, and doesn’t collect cat footprints from your 9-year-old Tabby. The surface tend to be very cutting-friendly – that is, it doubles as a cutting board which eliminates the need for a separate cutting surface. Some islands have storage cabinets underneath for extra dishes and stemware, which is attractive as well as convenient for entertaining guests.

Kitchen Island

The island counter top may also overhang slightly to accommodate four bar stools. As such, you may be able to get rid of the kitchen table and actually use your dining room for most family meals (perhaps at dinner time). You may find that placing the island directly across from your kitchen sink is a smart decision – the convenience of carrying freshly-washed vegetables from the sink directly to the island behind makes preparing vegetables much easier. Even if your kitchen is a decent size, one can always use the extra counter space, it’s wise to keep the island as clutter free as possible. Try and avoid the temptation to put your keys or mail on the island by assuring separate spaces are set aside for those items when you walk in the door.

What is Modern Kitchen Design?

“In most people’s vocabularies, design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains of the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design.
