Kitchen Islands can have some additional design options like breakfast bars and installed appliances which can achieve the 'triangle' design of sink-stove-refrigerator that is considered one of the top kitchen design ideas. Kitchen Islands are also available in many styles and designs such as: Contemporary, Traditional, American Folk and French Country.
When you enter the kitchen it is not the appliances or kitchen equipment that usually gets the first attention. Most of the time it is the kitchen backsplash that gets the first attention. The kitchen backsplash is the upright portion built against the wall at the back of the sink and stove. It is built to protect the wall from effects of water splashes and heat.
Express yourself with color. Because the backsplash is a relatively small area, it's your chance to play with color. It's always safe to choose warm, soft colors. However, you can be much more daring! This is your chance to add an exciting punch of color. Play with pattern. Patterns add interest - especially if you are on a tight budget. One easy way to save money is to select standard tiles in complementary or contrasting colors and then arrange them to create an interesting pattern. For instance, an unusual checkered pattern can make your kitchen feel like a quaint little bistro rather than a boring rental apartment.
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.
What to Include in a Kitchen Island. Some features to consider in adding a kitchen island can include the oven, kitchen exhaust hood, electric switches and outlets, and storage and shelves. Finally as for the material of the island counter while you could use the same material for the island counter as you have for the kitchen counter it is possible to consider different materials to create an more interesting look.
