Recycled Rustic Kitchen Island / Storage Cabinet

The benefits of a kitchen island

Multiple functions

There are two types of islands for the kitchen . The single wardrobes and drawer units using storage (jumbo) surmounted by a work plan , and multifunctional units that can combine various elements: sink, hob, oven. A corner bar with high chairs is possible for meals on the go. It all depends of course on the space you have and the function you want to book your island. Warning: the system must be designed in accordance with the essential rule of triangle activities (preparation / cooking, laundry / storage, storage / refrigeration), which saves not. Do you know for example that the path sink / hob is the most practiced? To meditate when you design your layout. Also, before choosing the hob on the island option, consider the necessary hood it will hang from the ceiling and possible projections require a perimeter of "backup" (40 cm) around the plate, and thus a larger cabinet.

A decorative element and friendly

The island can be in harmony with the other elements of the kitchen or have its own style, in keeping with the rest of the room. It can be the center of the room or be on the one side, attached to a wall (this is called a peninsula or island-cob). In an open space, it subtly marks the separation between the kitchen and the living room, but does not isolate people. On the contrary, its work plan, the host (ess) can continue to turn without turning back to his guests. Friendly, you are told!

The disadvantages of a kitchen island

Major work needed

If you want a multifunction island - especially when it includes a sink - the technical constraints are important grid and connecting a hose to the water supply and sewage disposal. Two options are open to you. The most elegant, but also the most expensive: break the ground and pour a new tread including said networks. The cheapest: raise the floor of the kitchen space with a platform that hide cables and pipes.

It is necessary to have in place

At least 15 m2: we must be able to turn around without bumping into the cupboards and appliances. An island worthy of the welcoming a hob and a bar area for four persons name must be at least 180 x 120 cm about 90 cm high. A clearance of 90 cm around the island is also a minimum to open and easy access to the closets. And circulate without any discomfort.
