Do you have an island in your kitchen? Are you wanting to remodel your space and add a island? Well did you know that the newly designed islands can give you a lot more bang for your bucks?? One of my close friends has her sink, microwave, trash, tons of storage and seating in her island. It’s really amazing and a bit mouthwatering for those of us who don’t have all the bells and whistles.
Here is a great diagram of some of the things you could have in your island space. One thing this island seems to lack is good seating. However if the island is working as just another workspace and your family uses the table more, than this isn’t a big deal.
Having special features like slide out shelves in the taller spaces, or using a pull out and mixer elevator makes getting out your mixer (which can be a heavy beast) out more often is fantastic and affordable!
How about using this space as a book holder? Keep those cookbooks close by and easy to find.
Remember to think outside the box when it comes to your kitchen space. Kitchens are the heart of the home and so a great island will not only be a focal point but also congregation space. Making the best use of the space will make your life easier and allow for much needed additional storage.
