One of the most popular kitchen features is an island. They are functional and can be a beautiful addition to you space. Kitchen islands can add eating space, prep space, storage and much more.
The first step is choosing the right kitchen island for your kitchen is to figure out how you should utilize the space. You will want to consider what your kitchen already has and what it needs. If you have an eat in kitchen you likely wont want to add dining space but you may want to add additional storage. A raised bar is another beautiful addition to a counter height kitchen island.
Some customers that work with Sweetwood Custom Cabinets have chosen to add a uniquely shaped island to their kitchen. L-shaped and U-shaped islands work great in large kitchens and add ample counter space and a large amount of storage. In a smaller kitchen you may look into adding a rolling island or even a circular island. Gallery shape islands are the most common and add accessibility, function and beauty to your home.
Another design feature that homeowners are asking for from custom cabinet companies like Sweetwood Custom Cabinets is a two toned kitchen. Homeowners are adding a statement to their kitchen design with a bright kitchen and dark island or other two-toned options.
Kitchen islands can add an additional place for a sink, extra dishwasher, warming drawer and more. If you are adding a waterline, electrical line or drain to your kitchen island you may need to do some demolition to get the line in. Jag rentals provides all the equipment rentals you or your contractor may need to get your island the power and water it needs. We also tend to use Junk Bros for our junk removal services.
