Kitchen Published by Heriberto chucho, Thursday, April 20th 2017, 00:02:33 AM.
Our homes are a place of comfort, creation and family and should reflect our personalities - much like the clothes we wear. Of course, they also need to be functional; this can prove most challenging when it comes to the kitchen, which is often the epicentre of the house.
A perimeter island, for example, might work better with open floor plans. Size and shape are also determined by room’s layout; Allow for at least 36-48 inches between the perimeter of the island and the surrounding cabinets so there’s enough room for people to move around.
Create a breakfast bar or dining table, and leave a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath when not in use.
Whether your space lacks a proper dining table or you’re looking to create a more casual bar-seating option, adding low-profile seating to the island is an easy way to increase functionality and make the environment more social for both guests and the cook.
