Macy Guillemot. Kitchen Islands. July 03rd , 2017.
Because granite is often expensive, many homeowners will choose less costly surfaces when designing their kitchen islands. However, a little bit of research will often reveal that there are resources for locating inexpensive granite options for your home. Many wholesale companies will sell granite remnants at a cheaper price, making it a viable option for a kitchen island surface. These pieces are what is often left over after large slabs are shaped and cut for large countertops.
Is your kitchen big enough to accommodate a large kitchen island? In general, the larger the kitchen island, the more space you‘ll have for storage, eating and food prep. Keep in mind, though, that an island doesn‘t have to be big to be useful.
Installing larger kitchen islands, though, has its benefits. A large island with ample space for seating (6 or more chairs or stools), for example, can eliminate the need for a dining table entirely, whether the seating is counter-height, bar-height, or built-in, banquette-style.
Pre-made antique-inspired designs can be purchased at plenty of home stores, but garage sales and online auctions are some of the best spots for finding these pieces. Consider checking your local newspaper for estate sales or multi-family sales where you might be able to discover furniture that would be ideal for an antique kitchen island design. Retro shopping sites, like Etsy, are also useful for finding these types of islands.
