Kitchen / July 2, 2018 /
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.
As you are designing your new kitchen, keep in mind the concept of architectural integrity. This means that you will want to produce a cohesive renovation by figuring out what will gel with the rest of your house. If you do not, your kitchen will stick out like a sore thumb and all of your hard work will be getting the wrong kind of attention.
