Friday adventures at work usually include creating the weekend social plan and searching for any new trends, products or Wellborn Cabinet projects on Houzz. There’s a lot of gorgeous designs out there, if you have designed any projects with Wellborn Cabinet make sure that you mention that in your description and keywords when you upload on Houzz, we would love to share your work!
Today on Houzz my main goal was to find as many unique islands designed with Wellborn Cabinet as I could within a reasonable time frame (of course) I mean really how long could a person actually stay on Houzz?
Now matter how unique or beautiful an island is – if it doesn’t serve the purpose for which it was designed it can be an eye sore or just in the way.
Several things to consider before designing a space with an island:
1. Is this your first island? Will this island create a new traffic pattern in your kitchen? Will that change be comfortable and convenient for the users of the space? (Maybe your designer can mark off the floor with tape to illustrate your new traffic patterns – just so you can visualize the space better.)
2. What activities will you use your island for?
*prepping, cooking, cleanup and gathering spot
*do you need water or power for hand-held appliances or for built-in appliances?
*do you need a seating area?
*Your activities can dictate the overall dimensions of the island – Will you need different heights at your island?
The island is a wonderful space to claim extra storage for your kitchen, a place just the children’s snacks or a great place to store items for guests – – easy access & easy to find.
These are a few of the things to think about and consider before adding an island to your kitchen design.
We hope you enjoy our island selections from Houzz.
