Whether you are constructing a new home or refurbishing an apartment, this is your chance to make your kitchen stand out by incorporating a contemporary kitchen island plan in your construction or redecorating project. Kitchen islands are very popular in contemporary (and functional) kitchen designs because it certainly makes cooking and entertaining or watching over the children as you prepare dinner a lot easier. There are a lot of options available not only in terms of design but also in terms of accessories that you can incorporate in your kitchen island plan before you begin your work. You can incorporate a sink, a stove top and other kitchen accessories in the kitchen island design so your home improvement project becomes a well-planned and financially controlled endeavor.
The design of a kitchen island is completely up to the homeowner. Some of the islands come in a natural wood color. This allows the homeowner to keep the island counter in the natural wood finish or the counter can be stained. Before designing the countertop, the homeowner should decide what look he or she is trying to achieve in the kitchen. A new trendy is to install a island top that is a bright color that doesn't necessarily match the already present color scheme in the kitchen. This makes the kitchen seem more artsy and funky and can make the island really stand out in the room. A homeowner may also decide that he or she wants a traditional kitchen island countertop that matches the rest of the color scheme. He or she will then need to design the kitchen island counter with the same materials and staining as the rest of the cabinetry and countertops in the kitchen.
The kitchen has traditionally had three main design elements, the cabinets, work space and the appliances. The cabinets are used for storage, counters are used as preparation areas and the appliances for food preparation or various other handling like refrigeration, cooking, cutting, etc. Up until after World War II, in the United States all three were provided by stand alone pieces of furniture. In big English kitchens large work tables were magnets for families as well as useful counter space. After World War II, when there was a boom of cookie cutter home construction in the U.S., kitchens acquired built in cabinets and counters. The kitchen became more utilitarian and was usually reserved for the woman of the home and used exclusively for cooking, while other parts of the home were designated for the actual eating and all other activities.
