In Long Island home remodeling projects, islands have almost become a modern kitchen must. Both practical and decorative at once, these home fixtures can add a lot of value to your home. If you are planning to remodel your kitchen, learn how to sketch out a plan of action.
Planning the Perfect Kitchen Sink Island
Before you get too deep into planning your project, it’s often helpful to draw on the inspiration of others to get your own creative juices flowing. Green Art Plumbing Supply’s Get Inspired page is a good place to start when planning any type of home project. There, you can see completed projects that get you dreaming of eating eggs at your very own breakfast bar on a lazy Sunday morning.
Consider How a Kitchen Island Will Fit the Room
Every Long Island kitchen is unique. Whether it’s U-Shaped, L-Shaped or another type of layout, the dimensions of the room are a key factor to consider when remodeling a kitchen.
Other Factors to Think About
- Size of the kitchen island
- Space for cooking, washing hands and meal prep
- Where your family will walk
- Room for stools
If your kitchen isn’t big enough to comfortably fit an island sink, there are always other options, like a rolling cart island.
Pick a Style for Your Kitchen Isle
Today’s kitchen island sinks are more than utilitarian fixtures. They come in a variety of sizes that are often quite fashionable, such as:
- Small, Non-Portable Kitchen Island
- Kitchen Island Table
- Base Cabinet with Countertop
- Fully Functional Island (Electricity and Water)
- Double-Tiered Cooking/Eating Kitchen Island
When deciding on a style, also consider how your family will use the kitchen island.
Lighting, Electricity, Plumbing and Other Practical Matters
As you get closer to making your dream kitchen island a reality, start to think about how this fixture will be used. Since some islands incorporate stoves, dishwashers and other appliances, now is the time to think about your kitchen lighting fixtures; how you will direct power and water to the kitchen island; and other practical concerns.
Make your Kitchen Sink Island your Own
In addition to its practical uses, your new kitchen island sink can be used to add style to your home or even become a talking piece for when guests come over.
When choosing the right type of island for your family, consider how this new piece (and its convenient counter space) will complement the overall décor of your kitchen.
Once you’ve done all this planning, you’ll be ready to start shopping!
