Ceiling lights or pendants above the island are standard choices for this hard-working space. New alternatives for kitchen design ideas when it comes to lighting are moving from up above to lower, functional areas of the space. This Bauformat design features lighting under the edge of the counter that casts light into the drawers when opened. This a great feature that makes it easy to find needed items. No more digging around in dark drawers, searching for a specific tool.
Amateur chefs can also create a cooktop that has all their favorite cooking surfaces and appliances. A customizable countertop cooking area from Wolf has different units that can be built in. Whether you want a grill, deep fryer, gas burner or teppanyaki surface, they can be mixed and match in an island or countertop. It makes producing great meals very easy when specialty appliances are at your fingertips.
Today’s islands can feature seating, cooking units, the sink, retractable venting and a host of other options to ramp up the functionality of the kitchen. Most of all, a modern kitchen island is very stylish and made from the latest materials that are beautiful, durable and easy to care for — no matter what the decor style.
The choices for kitchen appliances have grown far beyond the standard stove, oven and dishwasher. Today’s cook can choose from a variety of special appliances that fit his or her particular cooking style. Just about every cooking surface or appliance imaginable can be incorporated into kitchen design ideas. A fun kitchen from Monogram of Canada features the company’s built-in wall pizza oven that has its own integrated ventilation system. No more take-out because pizza lovers can get professional results at home!
