A kitchen island is not a new concept, since they were known back in the medieval days when knights were bold. They are assuming increasing popularity in todays kitchens, particularly in larger homes where the kitchen is more than just a small cooking area compressed into an area somewhere between the dining room and the garden shed! Even in smaller kitchens people are examining the possibilities that could arise by clearing away the traditional kitchen cabinets, and replacing them with kitchen islands that offer the same amount of walking space if not more. Here are some ideas for a kitchen island that is not plumbed in to serve a sink, but that offers a great deal of storage space and can effectively make your kitchen appear larger.
If you are decided on buying used kitchen furniture, you should also advertise your interest. An ad can be placed in your local newspaper or you can also check your local online community if they accept advertisements such as this. For a more personalized look, you can try making a flier and post it all over town and in our neighborhood, completely describing the details of what kind of used furniture you are looking for. Friends and family can also help spread the word around. Explain to them what you are looking for. They might even have the exact thing you are looking for!
Fabric gets loose, and light colored chairs stain easily. Thats a blemish that wont be easy to get rid of, though it will stick out like a sore thumb in an otherwise immaculate kitchen. Consider putting an island in the middle of the kitchen. This creates visual interest and expands the work space considerably. If designing from scratch, consider locating the stove, oven, and sink in the island. This is a somewhat radical departure from the ubiquitous design of traditional kitchens that puts the stove up against the wall. It is also quite functional, allowing the cook to look out into the room as opposed to gazing at the wall.
