If you have your own ideas for the type of kitchen island you'd like to have, you might consider having one custom-built or building one yourself. Islands can be large or small, depending on the space you have available in your kitchen. There are numerous websites that offer pictures of different styles of islands which you can look through in order to spark your own imagination. In addition, the Internet offers you many free carpentry plans for building your own island. You will find hundreds of different island designs as near as your home computer.
Size: Once you have decided on the materials that you'd like to use, it is time to consider the size. Do you want to go big and dramatic, making your kitchen island a focal piece of your kitchen remodel? Or are you more interested in something smaller and less obtrusive, using the island more for standalone functional? Consider how much use it will get, what it will be used for, and how important open floor space is in your kitchen when deciding on dimensions. Levels: If you decide to go the smaller-sized route when constructing your island that doesn't necessarily mean that you have to give up surface area. Adding a second level of a different height to your design will give the piece additional functionality. Multiple levels can be used for different functions such as: a place for a cutting board or book shelf, or as a breakfast bar with stool beneath it. These alternative designs can help give your kitchen island a more customized appeal.
Finally, the island becomes a focal point in the kitchen not only functionally but also aesthetically. It is, in many ways, a large piece of immovable furniture. By placing it in the middle of the room, you are putting it in the spotlight. You can make it stand out more by using different countertop materials from the rest of the kitchen or try to blend it in by making everything match perfectly. There are many decorative elements that can be applied to the kitchen island, ranging from colors and intricate, decorative mouldings to island shapes and arrangements.
