White kitchen islands are popular because color is always an important factor to be considered when it comes to kitchen design selection. The selection of the color should always go well with your taste as well as the decor of your kitchen. A perfect choice of color can also give a sense of space in the kitchen. This makes color an important element for design. The kitchen islands are also not an exception and selecting the right color for your island is a must. If you go for white kitchen islands, your kitchen can look much livelier. At the same time it would also create a special appeal to your kitchen. If the color combination does not suit the decor, you should keep in mind that it can simply spoil the look of the kitchen.
Another positive point about an island is that it can be designed or customized to fit the needs of the owner. As mentioned above, many islands can house various appliances, or they can provide the storage space to take the appliances off of the kitchen counters. The kitchen island may also be used as a makeshift kitchen office space. A kitchen island can be somewhere to organize meal planning, cookbooks, or helping a child with homework, while still being able to keep an eye on what may be cooking. There are also kitchen islands which can be moved as they are on rollers. This can be a benefit if the kitchen is small enough a stationary island could get in the way. The moveable island can be put into place when working in the kitchen, then moved when the tasks have been completed.
A custom built fixed unit used primarily as a storage area can be transformed into a miracle of modern kitchen design with the addition of a sink or dishwasher. A small compact refrigerator or wine cooler would be a nice add-on, together with an oven or microwave. A warming drawer would be a valuable addition too. In other words, a kitchen within a kitchen! Here is where your flair for shape and form comes to the fore! Every conceivable shape can be utilized in creating your kitchen island. It doesn't have to resemble the old table in the middle of the room. It can be L shaped which is cool; round, oval or simply rectangular. Each shape will give you untold possibilities for your storage or eating patterns. Counter tops could be split level to allow for both food prep at the lower level and a high level for eating. Seats will need to be chosen to match the island, should you add a seating and eating section. Either traditional chairs, stools or even bar stools but these can be a bit precarious after a few glasses of chardonnay so think carefully before you make the final decision!
