Multi-Purpose Style: This type of island may be bigger in size since this will become an all-in-one table for you. This can offer you a lot of choices; it will serve as your food preparation space, a place for your oven, storage and shelves for your utensils. You can also add a breakfast counter on your kitchen island as well.
The Kitchen Island with Granite Cutting Surface in Black Sand Through Finish is a great furniture option. Anyone who is looking for a granite top kitchen island, will appreciate the appearance of this counter top piece. This island offers many benefits. Not only is there a large counter area that makes it easy to accomplish a number of cooking tasks, but there is also extra storage area under the counter top. This includes shelving that is adjustable and also features drawers and cabinets covers. This means that you will be able to organize all of your kitchen equipment so that it's out of the way. The entire island is extremely impressive looking, so it will be sure to bring a look of sophistication to anyone's kitchen area. This is not the only island that offers many benefits.
A second kitchen sink can be included on the kitchen island. Use a sink that is deep enough for washing large pots and pans, and consider equipping the kitchen island with a trash compactor, garbage disposal, recycle bin and even a dishwasher. Cleanup will be much easier when these appliances are close by the sink.
Include a ventilation hood overhead to eliminate smoke, steam and cooking odors if your kitchen island is going to have a cooktop. The range hood should extend beyond the cooking area by 3 inches or more on the sides for proper ventilation. Using the correct fan size will ensure that removal happens as intended. Have a fan capacity of about 50 cubic feet per minute (cfm) for each square foot of cooktop area.
If you have a smaller kitchen space, that doesn't mean that you can't add island space to your kitchen. A portable kitchen island or food preparation cart can add usable surface area in a smaller space. You can store the cart out of the way most of the time, and then roll it out for use during meal preparation. The movable island can match your kitchen cabinets or it can have a completely different style, the choice is yours.
