Ideas for a kitchen island in your home

Do you need ideas for remodeling or upgrading your kitchen? One of our favorite kitchen upgrades is the addition of an island. Whether it is a party or eating breakfast, the kitchen is where everyone gathers to talk and eat. Installing an island that takes up more space in your kitchen may seem counter-intuitive, but it makes your kitchen better for congregating. Able & Ready Construction offers ideas for a kitchen island in your Prescott home.

You socialize in the kitchen because that is where the food is. You are either eating or prepping food while talking with friends and family. Unfortunately, the typical layout of the kitchen has the countertops on the outside, so you have to turn away from each other continually. Socializing is all about eye contact. An island allows the focus to shift to the center of the room, which helps everyone see each other while they are talking.

Contrast Colors
An island is unique in the sense that it doesn’t have to have the same color and finish as the rest of your cabinets and countertops. This is your opportunity to express your creativity. By giving your island a contrasting color or texture, you can give your kitchen a fresh look.

Different Counter Height
Another way to create contrast with your island is to give it different levels. You may have a portion of your island be tall enough for bar stools while the working area is lower.

Storage
If you like to cook, you probably have a lot of utensils, cooking appliances, and ingredients. All of these things quickly clutter a kitchen which creates eyesores (not what you want for hosting a party). An island can significantly increase your kitchen’s storage and allow you to take those appliances off the countertops. It also gives a more convenient place for your dishwasher or oven. 

A kitchen island provides an excellent atmosphere for hosting guests and being with family as well as improved storage and workflow. If you have questions about options for an island or new installation in your Prescott home, contact Able & Ready Construction at 928-775-6178.

5 out of 5 stars The job that Able &Ready did on our bathroom remodel was superb. They were always here when they said they would be and cleaned up every night before they left. When we ran into problems, we put our heads together and solved them. The crew we had working on the job was very professional and took their job seriously which showed in their work.
