The kitchen island as a stand-alone platform in the middle of the kitchen provides convenience and efficiency by creating more workspace. When the island is located in the center of the kitchen more space in automatically created. In most situations a kitchen island is the ideal way to separate the kitchen from the living room. If the kitchen island has cook top, sinks or pull-out drawer refrigerators then this accommodates greater convenience and socializing since one can do dishes and preparation while conversing with guests in the living room. There are endless uses for kitchen islands.
Technology is typically the first association people make with the word ‘modern.‘ And if you want your kitchen to be technologically advanced you will focus on computer chipped appliances and computers. Today appliances use computers to set temperatures, timers, food expiration dates, and even alerts for inventory restocking. A modern kitchen may very well include a large flat screen TV to display recipes, family calendars, household schedules, and it‘s certainly more fun to cook while watching videos, searching websites, or listening to music.
The Work Triangle: In the past, kitchen designs were done around a work triangle; it determined the position of the sink, refrigerator, and the range. A good kitchen design should make the distance between the three appliances comfortable because most kitchen work revolves around them. If the distance is much, whoever will be cooking will become tired trotting between them, and if too close the work area will be cramped. There are three major layouts for the work triangle; the galley, I-shaped and the u-shaped. The u-shaped layout places the three appliances on three different walls. In the I-shaped layout, one appliance is placed on one wall while the other two are placed on another. If you are working on very tight space, you can have all the appliances arranged along the same wall thus the name galley.
Appliances that are sleeker: If you only have two or three people in your family you do not need the larger capacity kitchen appliances as they take too much space in your kitchen. When you are doing a full kitchen renovation, purchase the smaller, more compact, and sleeker appliances. This can include a refrigerator that is medium size, smaller dishwasher, and apartment size stove.
