Are Kitchen Islands As Expensive As They Sound?

When you think of an island, you probably think of the tropics with a palm tree and a sandy beach. Well, have you ever thought you could have an island in your own home?

Kitchen islands are similar to those in the tropics as they can provide luxury and ease but for your cooking needs. Islands can double your preparing and cooking space and provide a modern atmosphere to your kitchen. But if you are thinking of installing one of these highly desired kitchen fixtures, there are a few things you might want to consider.

Firstly, having enough space in the kitchen to allow for an island is crucial. Steve Lenenberg, owner of Canyon Kitchen and Bath, suggests “an absolute minimum of 36 inches between the island countertop and any other permanent or semi-permanent cabinet, table or wall.” This extra space is essential for safety and efficiency.

Another convenience kitchen islands include is extra storage space. Canyon Kitchen and Bath specializes in cabinets in kitchen and bath areas. They have a wide variety of types and colors to suit your style.

Islands come in many different forms; one style would be a simple square shape with one or two cabinets. Other, more extravagant styles consist of wine racks, angled cabinets and decorative furniture posts. You should also keep in mind when considering all of your options that you are not just choosing the right style for your kitchen but for your home.
