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.
The kitchen island as a stand-alone platform in the middle of the kitchen provides convenience and efficiency by creating more workspace. When the island is located in the center of the kitchen more space in automatically created. In most situations a kitchen island is the ideal way to separate the kitchen from the living room. If the kitchen island has cook top, sinks or pull-out drawer refrigerators then this accommodates greater convenience and socializing since one can do dishes and preparation while conversing with guests in the living room. There are endless uses for kitchen islands.
And never forget the importance of little details to create a professional looking tile design. Plan, plan, plan! Go for durability. The kitchen is such a huge part of our daily lives. Although it is certainly the place where we nourish our bodies, it is also where we relax, visit, entertain, and even just "hang out." You want to create a clean, comforting vibe that withstands heavy use. The materials must be durable and stylish you know, beauty and function! Fortunately, tile is incredible durable so it is a wonderful material to use in your kitchen.
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.
A island counter can be a great place to put a microwave, blender or mixer. Some islands can have electrical outlets installed and can allow for the operation of these appliances while they are resting on the counter. A island countertop can also have a stove top installed to allow for more cooking space in the kitchen. These islands may also need to be equipped with an exhaust fan for the stove top. The design of a kitchen island is completely up to the homeowner.
