If there is one room in your home where efficiency matters, it is in the kitchen. Designing a kitchen that mimics the layout and style of a professional workspace is guaranteed to make your life easier. Design elements, including purpose, convenience and style, are the foundation to your cooking and maneuvering success.
With regards to kitchen islands, we for the most part think about extra stockpiling, preparation and serving space in the kitchen. It can likewise fill in as extra seating in the room. The size and area of the island can truly influence the productivity of the kitchen if done incorrectly. Islands that discourage the stream of activity to and from the sink, refrigerator, stove and primary workstations can make blockages.
Not having enough counter space is a huge gripe for anyone who cut corners or did not think they needed it. It is an important aspect of the overall kitchen design. Having enough space to cook, entertain and place groceries are just a few instances where counter space will be important. More counter space is not a feature that is easy to change or add on, so it is worth giving it careful thought before you start the installation process.
Layouts are usually dictated by the space available, but islands continue to dominate with many larger kitchens now opting for two islands. Most will have breakfast bar seating or banqueting seating attached to the island so that dining is incorporated into the kitchen area. An island or breakfast bar can also work as both a storage area and a place for dining. But less often they are used for actual food preparation. Utilise your island further by installing an appliance, the addition of a small sink or hob in your island will mean everyone can get involved with food prep.
