Before you consider if a kitchen island is right for you, your kitchen must have the space available. Islands are designed to divert traffic around the cooking areas and are meant to be functional in nature. If you have multiple people in the kitchen cooking or cleaning, adding an additional sink or stove top to the island is a great way to avoid collisions. Both stovetops and sinks can be built into islands, as well as warming drawers, microwaves, dishwashers and trash compactors. Islands additionally provide counter space for kneading dough, serving food, and preparing the end result.
If your island has an overhang, adding chairs is a great way to add to the dining space. If you want to consider remodeling your kitchen to include a functional island, please give Fort Rock Construction a call at (541) 767-1611 and we can help plan and construct your dream kitchen.
