When it comes to a kitchen remodel, you can’t underestimate the impact of a kitchen island. Whether you’re having a new one installed, or replacing the existing one, it’s important to think carefully about all the options available before deciding on the final design of your kitchen island. If you’re doing a remodel, don’t settle for a basic rectangular kitchen island. There are many benefits to choosing a custom kitchen island that is tailored to your tastes and needs.
Command Your Space
One of the greatest benefits of a custom kitchen island is that it allows you to determine how the space will be used in your kitchen. If you have a smaller kitchen or one that is oddly shaped, a custom kitchen island can help you maximize the utility of your space. Making sure you have a functional island that doesn’t overtake your kitchen is important to maintain the room’s flow.
A custom kitchen island can be made to serve your purposes, whatever they may be. Consider how your kitchen needs to flow when deciding the details and placement of your custom island. If it’s on the other side of the room from your refrigerator, the flow will be off and you’ll find the space difficult to maneuver. Having a space that makes functional sense should be the top priority.
That doesn’t mean the design has to suffer for functional prowess. A custom island can be any size and shape you want, so you can make a statement with it. Skip the standard rectangle and go for a rounded island, L-shaped, or even a multi-tier. Create a unique but functional island that draws the eye to it and acts as a centerpiece for your kitchen design.
Consider Your Needs
What does it mean to consider your needs? Think about how you use your kitchen, who else uses your kitchen and what they need, and how many people use it regularly. If you enjoy hosting large dinner parties, there should be design elements that cater to the need to seat and feed a lot of people at once. If children use the kitchen, consider clever design elements to help them use the space easily. The most amazing, jaw-dropping kitchen design will fall flat if the kitchen fails to function as intended for everyone who uses it. Spend some extra time ironing out the details and never underestimate the advantage of consulting with a professional.
Add Necessary Extras
Again, focus on functionality. Think about storage space within the island and what will be stored there. Does it need cabinets, drawers, or both? Does it need a sink or a hidden trash bin? How about a pull-out cutting board or a marble accent for baking? Curating the fine details of your island’s functionality and design is what will really make it stand out and awe you, your family, and your guests.
