The Benefits Of Installing A Kitchen Island
An island is a popular feature that we install in many of our kitchen remodels at Cardigan, and there are several benefits that an island provides to the entire kitchen experience. In both smaller and larger kitchens, an island can give you a place to prepare or serve food conveniently, but there are some things to consider before having an island as part of your new kitchen remodel. Mainly, you’ll want to make sure you keep your kitchen space open and moveable, as you don’t want the function of your kitchen hindered by your island.
With a new island installation, you can essentially break your kitchen up into two separate work spaces, and this can make preparing meals far more convenient. The island can be your own personal prep station, while the countertops are left free and clear for the actual cooking of your food. Also, you won’t have to worry about your appliances getting in the way while you’re working at readying a great meal. With new island installations, trends like hidden warming or cooling drawers, and hidden cutting boards, are also quite popular, and this can not only give you a prep station, but one that comes fully equipped!
Islands may not be for everyone, and if your kitchen is particularly small, you may wish to opt for more counter space or another alternative instead. With a particularly small kitchen area, an island can create an obstacle that you have to work around, rather than work with, and this is just what you don’t want out of your new remodel. If you do still desire an island, however, you may want to look into focusing on opening up your space with your remodel, and creating the new space you need for your island to go!
At Cardigan, we can make your island dreams work, and our professionals can help you in installing a kitchen island and design your kitchen, and your island, just the way you’ve always wanted it to be!
