Add a Sink or Two: Adding kitchen appliances such as a sink to your new kitchen island will give it even more functionality and also serve as a gathering point when entertaining. A sink boosts the usability of any kitchen island by giving you another place to rinse off food and wash dishes. A sink can also be great when entertaining, so your guests can take part in the preparation of the meal without cluttering up your existing counter space around the oven and refrigerator.
Materials: Now that you've decided to build a kitchen island, materials are something to consider. There are many materials available to build your island with such as: wood and stainless steel as well as a wide variety of countertop options like quartz or granite that will give your kitchen island an original design. Your materials should be selected to match the rest of your kitchen. A kitchen island should complement the space without overwhelming it or sticking out. Wood can give a kitchen a rustic, chic feel while natural stones like granite and quartz offer your new surface durability and timeless elegance. Stainless steel is a great surface to use for cooking and creating edible masterpieces and marble could be another alternative to a traditional design, depending on your budget.
Placing an appliance on the island may not seem like you are decorating but this serves as both a functional way and decorative way to store a great appliance that you may have. Don't just put any old appliance on the counter area. Instead use your nice fancy stainless steel toaster or blender for the décor. If you are going to decorate with an appliance be sure that the island has outlets or there is one accessible from where the island is located in the kitchen.
