The best thing about a kitchen island is when family and friends are gathered around. It is the center point of any kitchen and will help create endless memories. However, adding one to a pre-existing kitchen is a bit of a challenge.
Whether the island is a space for homework, storage, prep, or entertaining, it will always be the focal point of any kitchen.
If the space is large enough, adding appliances to your island such as a sink or stove is a great way to play on the flow of space. Depending on the way you work, this may be the best work flow for you and your family.
Storage is a problem in every kitchen. Adding an island is the easiest way to combat this problem. Two 24-inch cabinets side by side is the standard for an island (Unless you want a ‘mobile island’ on wheels). Keeping pathways open enough for possibility and cabinet doors from bumping is definitely something to pay attention to when designing an island to any kitchen.
And last but not least, style. The way your kitchen looks is just as important as the way it functions. Thankfully we are here to help. Cabinet Cures offers a plethora of colors and door styles to fit with any design choice.
