There are many different kinds of kitchen furniture to consider when you are furnishing a new home. The most important is the breakfast nook set, but there are others. Kitchen island furniture and kitchen storage furniture are other classes of furniture to choose from. The breakfast nook set is the most important kitchen furniture choice because it is where your family will gather for most meals and where even your guests will join you. In addition, the breakfast table and chairs are the largest set of furniture in the room so it is where the eye will naturally be drawn. You want the table to be as large as it can possibly be and still fit in the space you have. Even if your family is small now, things may change in the future and you are sure to have guests, so you want as large a table as is practical. Make sure to leave enough room for chairs or benches to be pulled in and out between the edge of the table and the walls. Also, pick a table shape that suits the room. For example, if the breakfast nook is circular or octagonal in shape, a circular table would be a better use of space than a rectangular or square one.
If you are hanging anything from the ceiling, make sure that there is sufficient clearance so that people do not bang their heads on a skillet or frying pan! Clearance is all-important with kitchen islands, because there is not a lot worse than having a kitchen that is severely restricted in space just to accommodate an island. The island should complement your kitchen, not dominate it.
Another problem you might face if you buy your kitchen island as a separate unit, and not as part of the overall kitchen, is matching it to your existing cabinets. This might not be as easy as your think, but if you purchase a solid color, such as black, white or red, then you should get away with it. Regarding colors and designs, kitchen islands can be made from a number of different materials. The framework is usually wood, but the main visible surfaces could be metal or even stone - granite is a popular substance used for counter tops. Stainless steel is also good, but try to avoid aluminum if possible, because that is very soft and easily cut and scratched, and the metal oxidizes to a dull finish.
