While it might seem that a kitchen island is just a place for extra storage or counter space during meal prep, there are many advantages to having one in your home. When it comes time to create a brand new kitchen design, consider adding an island to coordinate with your South Coast kitchen cabinets. At Paul’s Quality Kitchens, we specialize in kitchen and bathroom design services for homeowners through Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Of all the trends that we have seen come and go over the years, one of the most beneficial to homeowners is the kitchen island. Islands are great for families, singles, home cooks, entertainers, and for anyone who just wants a beautiful kitchen remodel in Fall River for their home.
Extra Storage – and More!
One of the most obvious benefits of adding an island to your brand new kitchen design is that it increases the amount of storage – right where you need it most. Drawers, cabinets, cubbies, and other storage elements can all be included in the design of your new kitchen island when you work with our professional kitchen and bathroom design services team. Pull out shelves, recycling bins – the options for extra storage, utility space, and room to put items you use daily can be increased significantly.
Kitchen Seating and Dining Options
Whether you entertain frequently or would just like a place for the kids to have breakfast without dirtying up the dining table, your new island can be a perfect solution. An informal dining area, a place for guests to relax while you prepare a meal, and even a place for homework, going over reports, catching up on daily news. You can add electrical outlets, which can be used for charging devices, and an extended bar top, to allow seating for two, four, or more, depending on the available space.
Extra Preparation Space
We have all had those experiences where there is simply not enough counter space. Whether you are trying to prep dinner while everyone else wants to make lunch or a snack, or you need more room to cook a large family meal than your basic countertops allow. Space for small kitchen appliances can be increased on the wall countertops when you have more food prep areas with an island for your kitchen remodel in Fall River. An extra sink made just for washing and chopping ingredients with a handy built-in trash option can make preparing a meal so much more efficient.
In addition to extra space for food preparation, you now also gain the ability to add more features to the rest of your kitchen with South Coast kitchen cabinets and design. Refrigerator drawers, additional cooktops, a range hood over the primary stovetop, and other unique features can all be possible when you have more space for storage and preparation with a kitchen island. Plumbing and electrical options, as well as other services, can be included in the design of the island to make it even more functional and valuable to your brand new kitchen design.
A Decorative Accent Piece
While you can select the materials for your new island to coordinate with your other cabinetry, many homeowners are now choosing to use their island as a means of incorporating an accent color. Instead of natural wood, white, and other colors to match the wall and base cabinets, you can choose a unique hue, such as blue, yellow, red, or black, to add a touch of elegance to your kitchen remodel in Fall River. In addition, there are many options for other materials, including butcher block or concrete waterfall countertops, exotic woods that would be too pricey for an entire kitchen cabinet set, and other unique surfaces.
