Best Practices for Designing Kitchen Islands

A well-designed kitchen island is much more than an afterthought; preferably, it is an integral part of the kitchen’s ability to serve the occupant’s needs. Over the years, kitchen islands have evolved to offer homeowners and designers more than just extra counter space; instead, the kitchen island has become a unique opportunity for customization.

When specifying a kitchen island, the first step is determining the function of the island. The ideal kitchen island requires as much planning and consideration as the rest of a well-designed kitchen. This multi-purpose space provides designers with creative options, such as a cooking workstation, a prep workstation, seating for guests, a breakfast bar, or even home office area.

This course begins with an overview of the kitchen island’s purpose and then narrows down to best practices for specification of storage, countertops, and undercounter appliances, as well as lighting, ventilation, specialty appliances, and computer charging stations.
