A kitchen center counter may be designed in a curved shape, a square shape, an oval shape, a rectangular shape, or an L-shape. Basically, the design and shape of the island will also depend on what you are using the new kitchen addition for. Say for example, if you plan to use it as a kitchen table, or simply a boundary between the people hanging out and the people preparing the food, you need to consider shapes with softy-contoured edges since these are comfortable to lean on.
Some newer kitchen island ideas include the following features: rolling islands that can be used where a large island won't fit, granite-topped islands, and islands with furniture like features such as pilasters. New homebuyers aren't the only ones that should consider a kitchen island design for their kitchen. Some older homes with an awkward kitchen floor plan with limited space can also benefit from a kitchen island design idea. Closed off kitchens have been transformed into more open looking kitchens by lowering existing walls half way to forms islands between the kitchen and nearby living space.
Once you determine that an island will enhance your kitchen design, you have several additional options to consider. You can create another work space by adding a second sink and dishwasher into your island. This will allow a second cook to work in the kitchen or allow you to prepare two separate dishes without contaminating one with the other. The added counter space provided by your kitchen island will allow you easier food preparation by minimizing clutter and stacks of bowls and utensils.
