Custom Kitchen Island Designs for Your Home Remodel
Beautiful Kitchen Islands as Part of Your Kitchen Remodeling Project
In most of our kitchen design or kitchen remodeling projects, our clients are interested in kitchen island design. It’s not surprising that kitchen islands have largely supplanted peninsulas, work tables, and sometimes even the kitchen table.
A kitchen island creates a design focal point and can draw family members and friends together – to do homework, do crafts, or simply enjoy a glass of wine.
Creating the Perfect Custom Kitchen Island Design for Your Needs
Picture a modern kitchen without a kitchen island, and you likely only see one or two family members spread out, engaged in their own activities. But add a custom kitchen island, and you can imagine preparing dinner on the kitchen island as your kids have a snack and do their homework on the island’s countertop.
Or, imagine cooking a meal for friends, and talking and laughing with them as they sit around your custom kitchen island.
Questions to ask about kitchen island design include:
- What kind of kitchen island design best fits your lifestyle?
- Do you want a kitchen island with seating?
- Do you want kitchen island lighting?
- Will you also use the island for entertaining?
Kitchen Islands With Beautiful Custom Cabinetry
Most kitchen island designs are comprised of peninsula-base cabinets that have access from two sides, or back-to-back base cabinets. Obviously, the larger your custom kitchen island, the more things can be installed in it: sinks, appliances, storage, and more.
The ideal space requirements surrounding a custom kitchen island design are 48″ on one side and 42″ on one of the other sides. This requires an immense kitchen, but don’t panic. Typically, we design with 36″ on three sides and 42″ on the other and this provides ample space.
If you’d like your kitchen to be the heart of your home for family and friends, you should look into a custom kitchen island with similar measurements.
Adaptable Free-Standing Kitchen Islands
Cabinet manufacturers, like Dura Supreme Cabinetry and Medallion Cabinetry, caught onto custom kitchen island design trends and created the components our designers needed to design striking free-standing kitchen island plans. Because these versatile islands are like free-standing furniture, they can easily be adapted to your needs.
These custom kitchen island elements also add high style and a luxurious touch to your kitchen. For example, a handcrafted, free-standing custom kitchen island by Jay Rambo, the owner of a kitchen designer we often work with, isn’t only a piece of furniture but also a piece of art.
These custom kitchen island elements can enhance your kitchen’s aesthetic even as it adds function as a gathering and work space.
