The addition of an elevated bar top to a kitchen island adds more function and an added degree of visual interest. Often the bar surface can be a different material than island work surface. For example, the island could be granite and the bar top hardwood - a stunning combination.
There are many sizes and designs of kitchen islands and a homeowner should be sure to measure and examine the current space, color and size before choosing the correct one. It doesn`t necessarily have to match the current counter top and cabinet colors or textures. The latest trend in these islands is to install an island of a different material and color than the rest of the kitchen. This allows your island to stand out as a center piece and become the focal point of the room.
The large immovable kitchen islands may turn out to be a kitchen remodeling job, with the design work and planning that entails. Water, gas or electrical lines may have to be run for this type. It can be used for just food preparation, or sometimes seating may be added with counter stools, so that it has a work area on one side, and seating on the other. Either way, the 360 degree access that a kitchen island provides will make your kitchen a dream kitchen.
Some islands have a counter overhang which is perfect for extra kitchen dining space. Adding chairs or bar stools to a kitchen can eliminate the need for a breakfast table. A island with eating space can also make the kitchen feel more welcoming and open for guests. Extra seating in the kitchen with the help of a kitchen island allows for a more relaxed feel for guests than a formal dining room.
