But what kind of kitchen island should you choose for your kitchen. Aesthetic-wise, the most important determining factors in choosing a island design should be your own taste and the style of the surrounding kitchen. The aesthetic of your kitchen island is important, but equally important are its functions.
Modern kitchen islands can come with many useful features, including built in appliances, trashcans on a servo drive so all you have to do is touch the door to make it come out or return, raised breakfast bars, and of course space for seating. To decide which features are most important to you, our designers would ask you a few questions. For instance: would you like enough space for your kids to do homework while you cook? Will you be entertaining guests often?
At Signature Kitchens, Additions & Baths, our designers will work with you to develop the custom kitchen island design that fits your Chevy Chase home the best.
Cabinet-based kitchen island designs, made using peninsula-based or back-to-back cabinets, are usually of the larger variety. Though their size does not leave as much room for flexibility in terms of placement, these large kitchen islands are very versatile. Owing to their size, cabinet-based kitchen islands can adopt almost any kitchen feature you can think of. These custom islands can have built in sinks, appliances, mini refrigerators, wine cabinets and coolers, space for eating and seating areas, and more.
Cabinet-based kitchen island designs require more space in the surrounding area so that they don’t obstruct one’s movement through the kitchen – unfortunately, this is often a problem with the homes in Chevy Chase.
