Most wood frame homes are custom built to accommodate the homeowner’s preferences for how many bedrooms they need, how the kitchen should be designed, and more. If you are in the planning stage of building your own wood frame home, here are some kitchen island designs to help you plan your perfect kitchen. Kitchen islands can expand your workspace, give your kitchen its own personality, and come in a variety of design options.
Today, more people are entertaining and eating at home, so a large kitchen island would be very helpful. It can be built to be a workspace and a place for children to do their homework and eat breakfast. Some can even be built long and thin, so there can be up to eight seats or more and more space around the perimeter. How long would depend on the space available.
Peaks and valleys
Today, many people have multi-tier kitchen islands. This design is great for hiding meal prep clutter. The art of disguise isn’t the only reason to choose this design for your wood-frame homes. You can also incorporate a variety of surface materials such as a butcher block area for cutting vegetables, a granite surface for placing hot pans, or marble that is good for rolling out cake batter. The various surfaces and heights add dimension and function to your kitchen design,
If you are a homeowner and find that one kitchen island is not enough, you can always have two islands built if you have the space to do so. With island hopping or dual islands, you can have specialized storage areas and designated work zones.
Away from it all
This is another increasingly popular style of kitchen islands for your new wood frame home. Designers call it “the unfitted look.” Basically, it looks like a piece of furniture, not a component that belongs to the kitchen. You can give this kitchen cabinet component a different countertop surface, turned leg, along with other accents for cabinet-style components. It is often accentuated by laying it on a colorful rug.
This kitchen counter design offers you a variety of designs such as indefinable, crescent shaped or wavy. If it suits your kitchen, budget, and taste, build the kitchen countertop you want. With a unique design, it will be the toast of the internet.
In a wood frame home, you don’t have to stop your build level height at your waist. With the right home design and planning, you could even build an upstairs cabinet set with glass doors so everyone can see your variable collections.
