“If you’re an aspiring chef, are passionate about appliances, or just love to cook, then choosing your appliances before planning the rest of your kitchen remodel is best.”
What’s the phrase? No woman is an island; she just has one in her kitchen? Center islands continue to be one of the hottest kitchen design trends.
Hang pendant lights or a chandelier 30 to 34 inches from the tabletop to create cozy pools of light, and draw diners’ attention to what’s most important: good food and great company.
Still, you’ll need to resist the urge to cram as much as you can into this layout. For instance, you’ll need to plan a minimum of 47 inches between opposite kitchen units so that doors and drawers can be opened freely from both sides at a time, says Vayo.
For starters: ”The size of the kitchen will largely determine the layout, since many kitchen functions require certain amounts of space around them to be the most efficient,” explains Nancy Vayo, senior interior design leader for Ikea North America.
“If space permits, an island becomes an added benefit of storage and function,” says Vayo.
