According to the National Association of HomeBuilders (NAHB), kitchen islands are one of the most popular kitchen design features among today's consumers. The NAHB also reports that buyers of new homes have also indicated a desire for kitchen islands as well. Actually some 80% of homebuyers consider a kitchen island to be an absolute must.
There's a good variety of tiles obtainable within the marketplace that could be utilized for developing mosaic backsplashes for your kitchen. One of the benefits of mosaic backsplashes will be that they're simple to maintain and clean. Though exposed to spills, they're less likely to discolor than plain or ordinary tiles. And, you possess a selection within colors, shapes and tiles, to be utilized for a mosaic. While the backsplash will be limited to a smaller region, you could limit your creativity and art, without developing more of a gaudy pattern within the whole kitchen.
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.
Floor Tile Ideas. There are two common kitchen tile ideas to choose from. It only needs a little analysis and the proper design that goes with the entire concept of the kitchen theme. Glazed tiles are smooth and can easily be cleaned by simple mopping. Smooth kitchen floor tiles are classy and elegant in the modern kitchen. Unglazed tiles are non-skid making them safe from slips and falls. They need regular cleaning for proper sanitation and maintenance of their chic look.
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.
