Kitchen Islands For Smaller Kitchens

Kitchen islands are a home design trend that will continue into 2022! Homeowners love the look, convenience, and versatility of having multi-functional space in their kitchens.

Not every kitchen lends itself to a massive island in the middle of the room, but that doesn’t mean you can’t include an island in your kitchen remodel. Here are a few ways you can enjoy the benefits of an island when you remodel—even if you have a smaller kitchen.

  • Choose a Small Butcher Block/Sink Combo: Consider an island that is essentially a compact butcher block (for chopping/cutting) with a built-in sink for washing veggies. It’s a functional workspace that doesn’t take up much valuable floor space. And now you can get rid of your cutting boards!
  • Make It Mobile: Another option is to have a butcher block mounted on a rolling stand. You can store items in the cart and move the island to where it’s convenient. If your kitchen is narrow, you can customize the island and make it narrow to fit.
  • Make It Table Height: Most kitchen islands are counter height, but a lot of families don’t like sitting at that height for meals. If you want to include an eating space in your kitchen, consider asking your kitchen remodeler to build you a table with a quartz top. It can function as a workspace when you need it and a beautiful kitchen table for dining.

How Has Your Kitchen Changed?
There’s little doubt that kitchen trends have changed dramatically over the years. With the increased time at home in 2021, many people are bringing items into their home that they hadn’t considered previously. Here are a couple of things that have become more popular in kitchens this year:

  • At-home espresso makers
  • No-touch faucets
  • Antimicrobial materials

What would you add to the list? How has your kitchen changed this year, or how would you like to see it change in the coming year?

Have a wonderful December! If you’re considering remodeling your kitchen in the new year, contact us.
