Your kitchen needs to be big enough for an island, usually at least 13 feet wide. The size of the actual island will also depend on the overall available space. You need to make sure that there is enough room to walk between the island and cabinetry as well as open all doors (cabinets, dishwasher, compost bin, etc.). Also, if you are planning to have barstools or chairs at the island, make sure there is enough room with them there. Islands work best with L, U and G shaped kitchens. These shapes make for relatively enclosed kitchens and the island can help to encourage more interaction in the space without making the flow awkward.
Kitchen island designs are plenty and you can take your pick based on what functions you want it to fulfill. If you are looking for no-fuss, efficient and easy-to-clean kitchen islands, you should go for a stainless steel design. This article provides a few ideas on how you can dress up your kitchen in accordance to your preference for functionalities and looks. Kitchen islands are used to add space and storage in kitchens. They are available in a number of designs, shapes and sizes. Depending on the design, kitchen islands can be pretty functional, with the number of features as well as a way to dress up your kitchen. The stainless steel islands come with a number of features like expandable counters, closed aluminum cabinets and options of adding a breakfast bar with a steel drop leaf or have extra seating. While you may get some stainless steel island designs that are stationary, you can also choose to pick those that come casters or wheels at the base for you to move them easily. Movable steel islands are good to use as they are light yet very sturdy.
Another alternative is to have a custom island designed just for your needs. Kitchen design experts can help you come up with an island that will fit perfectly into your space and also have all of the components you really want to have. You can add a cooktop, a sink, or even a built-in microwave oven which can free up a lot of your counter space. Both a cooktop and a sink built into an island can help the cook become more a part of the festivities when you're entertaining if the island is used as a room divider between the kitchen and other living spaces.
