Kitchen Islands Iqaluit NU
Smiths Falls, ON
(NC)-As the attractiveness of kitchen islands continue to grow, so do the innovations. In fact, the number-one design feature on consumer wish lists is a central island cooktop. But cooktops aren't the only island innovations. Following are the newest kitchen finds and options to consider when building or turning your fantasy island into a functional - and stylish - workspace.
When deciding on the layout for your kitchen island, why not customize your fantasy and create levels? Multi-level islands are becoming increasingly popular since most homeowners not only want a work area, but also an informal place for entertaining guests. Additionally, be sure to incorporate enough drawers and shelves below the work area to keep key ingredients, utensils and your favourite cookbooks right at your fingertips.
Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot
Turn up the heat and get cooking. According to Kitchen & Bath Design News, homeowners want a central island cooktop as part of their kitchen island. Installing cooktops brings countertop burners within easy reach, while also creating room for amenities below, such as additional storage - or even warming drawers.
Easy Clean Up
In addition to your cooking surface, install a sink and faucet in your kitchen island to make food prep and clean up quick and easy. Cutting up vegetables can even be stylish with the minimalist design of the new Level pulldown kitchen faucet from Moen. Its sleek and contemporary lines, accented in the most popular finishes, blend beautifully with modern kitchen decors. Plus, Level's pulldown wand also makes performing everyday tasks - such as filling large pots, pitchers and vases - in and around the sink and island easy.
Topping It Off
Add character to your island countertop with a dramatic surface finish. While high-end materials, such as granite, metal, solid-surface and marble are still popular to install, new custom, hand-applied finishes with unique designs, such as full circles and waves, can add unique beauty to your island and set your countertop apart.
With your fantasy island now becoming a reality, spruce up your space with some finishing touches. Installing long, vertical drawer and cabinet pulls add flair to the kitchen, while also doubling as towel bars. Offer your guests comfortable and stylish seating around your island with new bar stools that fit comfortably under your high-top counter. Finally, shed some light on your new fantasy island with pendant lighting.
With a few island innovations, you'll make the most of your kitchen space and create your own, customized fantasy island.
