The kitchen is the place where families gather and friends and guests are entertained. Island kitchen cater for this all-important social aspect because have a lively friendly feel about them. Island kitchens were so named because there is a large unit in the middle of the room which includes the base units and often the hob as well.
Factoring an island into your kitchen means having enough space to position it. To get the best out of it, our recommendation is to have at least 110 cm between the central unit and the other counters which will give you enough ease of movement. This way the island will act as a hub for the rest of the composition. It will be where you prepare all your meals and your family & friends naturally throng.
With the right layout, it can become extraordinarily easy on the eye and provide a great visual anchor, forming an important contrast with the living area in open-space areas. Island compositions allow for improved space management as well as increased storage space. Not only, but with the addition of a few bar stools and an eating counter along one or more sides, it encourages socialising - not an aspect to be underestimated in today's contemporary society.
