Whether you are constructing a new home or refurbishing an apartment, this is your chance to make your kitchen stand out by incorporating a contemporary kitchen island plan in your construction or redecorating project. Kitchen islands are very popular in contemporary (and functional) kitchen designs because it certainly makes cooking and entertaining or watching over the children as you prepare dinner a lot easier.
Maple Kitchens This is a very valuable hardwood timber, we have in North America the Sugar Maple while in Europe we have the Sycamore Maple. Butchers blocks and bowling pins are mostly manufactured from hard maple from North America and it has a beautiful decorative wood grain that is extremely popular when installing fitted kitchens in Ireland. Ash Kitchens This wood is a tough hardwood and is used for making bows, fitted kitchens, electric guitar bodies and one of the famous sporting accessories the hurley stick. Hurling is a sport played by sporting warriors all over Ireland and is deemed to be the fastest spot in the world. Not for the faint hearted.
Kitchen Islands can have some additional design options like breakfast bars and installed appliances which can achieve the ‘triangle‘ design of sink-stove-refrigerator that is considered one of the top kitchen design ideas. Kitchen Islands are also available in many styles and designs such as: Contemporary, Traditional, American Folk and French Country. Many kitchen islands can be created with natural woods such as, Northern Maple, Red Oak, Poplar, Birch, and plantation-grown exotic woods. Other kinds of kitchen islands are constructed of stainless steel, or wood combined with stainless steel. Island tops are usually hard wood, granite or marble, stainless steel, or butcher block, which is usually Hardrock Maple fastened end or edge grain to prevent cracking and warping.
Appliances that tend to be used frequently are then free to stand on the surrounding work surfaces, brought onto the central island when they need to be used. Not everybody, however, is blessed with a kitchen large enough to accommodate a kitchen island. In smaller houses the galley kitchen is the norm and, again, the ‘working triangle‘ needs to be taken into account when implementing suitable kitchen decorating ideas. In most galley kitchens the hob is along one wall with the sink directly opposite and work surfaces either side of both hob and sink. This means the main working area is the triangle within the centre of the kitchen. In Western kitchens, regardless of the level of cooking skills the kitchen user has, each kitchen houses very similar appliances. There are certain items that are found in all kitchens, such as washing machine, fridge, cooker - either fitted or free-standing - sink unit and fitted cupboards with work surfaces built-in.
