Whether your space lacks a proper dining table or you’re looking to create a more casual bar-seating option, adding low-profile seating to the island is an easy way to increase functionality and make the environment more social for both guests and the cook. Create a breakfast bar or dining table, and leave a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath when not in use.
The hood must create a duo with the kitchen island and the two should match and complement each other. Just like there are numerous types of kitchen islands, there are also all sorts of different types of range hoods. They differ with their shape, size, design and technical options.
Adding marble to the kitchen can be an expensive affair and requires plenty of care. Not every kitchen is ready for a marble upgrade, and if your home sees plenty of traffic with kids and pets constantly around, then you might want to reconsider choosing marble for the kitchen island. Marble both stains and etches easily, and anything acidic can quickly leave behind permanent damage. All it takes is one spill that is not instantly cleaned and your marble countertop can start losing both its sheen and visual appeal.
