Additional kitchen island ideas are to consider using shelf space on the sides of your kitchen island for cookbooks, collectibles or storage. A built-in TV works here, especially if it faces the family room. Or a microwave may work well for heating up after-school snacks and cooking foods quickly.
Maximize natural light by having windows and skylights, and keep kitchen wall surfaces light in color to reflect daylight. Custom kitchen islands work great by using pendant or recessed fixtures to direct light onto the kitchen island and other work areas. Electrical codes will likely require that electrical outlets be located on the sides of fixed kitchen islands, not on the top, to prevent electrical shock.
Affordability: The average cost to reface a kitchen will be anywhere between $3,500 to 6,500 depending on the size of the kitchen. The average cost to replace a kitchen starts at around $20,000 to $40,00. The reason is simple, refacing makes use of your old, structurally sound cabinets. Why tear out perfectly good cabinets, only to replace them with perfectly good cabinets? The truth is, your old cabinets are often better constructed than today's cabinets. This is one of the reasons why refacing was such a great idea 35 years ago and is still going strong today.
