If you’re about to embark on any home remodeling project, a big reason for it is often a need for more space: more storage, more workspace, more gathering space. Nowhere is this principle truer than in a kitchen remodel. If you’re working on your kitchen design, a good way to add more usable space is the addition of a kitchen island. Kitchen islands provide the ideal solution for kitchens that have unused floor space, and they can be customized to meet all of your needs and desires. Read on for some kitchen island trends that you should consider as you plan your kitchen design.
One of the primary reasons for adding an island for many people is to add additional seating to their kitchen. Seating at your island can be on one side, usually opposite the workspace, or on multiple sides. The island top is often higher than traditional table height, so the seating is most often stools. A big trend is to have the island surface hang over enough so that the stools can be stored under the island top when they’re not in use.
Another interesting trend in seating is to build bench seating off of the island and pair it with a pedestal table. This is a bit of a break from the traditional way that an island provides seating since you’re not using the island top as an eating surface. This is a good option for people who don’t want elevated seating, like stools.
A waterfall countertop is one that “flows” over the sides so that the countertop surface forms two of the sides of the island as well. This is a style that has been gaining popularity and will continue to be a top choice. It creates clean lines and a smooth, crisp style.
One final trend that we will see a lot of is a split level surface. Making the work surface slightly lower than the eating surface is a good way to hide the prep space from view and make the whole island look crisp and clean from the other living space in your house.
