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.
Get the most bang for your buck. You can get the most bang for your buck by investing in the area above the range or cooktop. A custom backsplash above the stove creates a natural focal point for your kitchen. Get creative. Want to break from the norm? Why not extend your kitchen backsplash all the way to the top of the cupboards? The clean lines will make your kitchen feel more modern. Have you ever thought about using glass blocks as a kitchen backsplash? Natural sunlight can easily transform a kitchen from a dark and dismal room into a radiant, bright space that you want to hang out in. Get creative!
Include a ventilation hood overhead to eliminate smoke, steam and cooking odors if your kitchen island is going to have a cooktop. The range hood should extend beyond the cooking area by 3 inches or more on the sides for proper ventilation. Using the correct fan size will ensure that removal happens as intended. Have a fan capacity of about 50 cubic feet per minute (cfm) for each square foot of cooktop area.
Here are kitchen island ideas to consider when planning your kitchen: Kitchen islands work best in larger L, U or G-shape kitchens. If the kitchen is too small, the kitchen island will become an obstruction and hinder easy movement. The best custom kitchen islands for small to midsize kitchens are a portable butcher block or kitchen cart for food prep or extra storage.
Floor Tiles Design. The first basis for kitchen tiles design is color. You can choose the right shade from the colors of the wall or the furniture and fixtures in your kitchen. Take note of your budget for the kitchen floor and you can narrow down your search for kitchen floor tiles. If you want easy to clean floor tiles after your food preparations, buy coated wood tiles or glazed tiles. Be sure to make an actual layout to finalize your kitchen flooring design before permanently attaching them to the floor.
