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.
The kitchen is a room where people regularly gather to cook, have meals, share cups of coffee and tea or have family discussions. This implies that the type of flooring in this room must be resilient enough to endure the heavy foot traffic. And apart from being sturdy, it also has to be very safe, especially in homes where there are children and older people. The flooring should also be comfortable enough because there is the tendency of standing for a long time either cooking or socializing around the kitchen.
There is also Vinyl Linoleum kitchen flooring which is a recent technological development in engineered wood flooring and engineered oak flooring. Vinyl linoleum is one of the durable and stylish flooring types ever and it is possibly the best practical kitchen floors accessible. This is because it is stain resistant and it is also very easy to clean. There are different ranges of styles available which include wood, plain vinyl and tile effects. All these are available in very low and affordable prices.
Countertop material for the island doesn't have to match the rest of your kitchen countertops as long as it is harmonious with the room's overall design. You may want to splurge on solid surfacing here, for example, and use laminate on the other countertops. A butcher-block countertop is ideal for chopping, while granite or marble works well for baking purposes and for rolling pastry dough.
Besides meal preparation, the kitchen can become a gathering area for family and friends if there is enough space. Since so much happens in the kitchen on a regular basis, getting the layout right is important. The kitchen island can serve as an additional eating area, and food preparation can easily be done there. In a large kitchen, the kitchen island can shorten the distances within the working triangle (sink, refrigerator and range or cooktop) and make it more efficient.
