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.
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.
Of course, in order to be able to accurately compare freestanding kitchen cabinets with anything else we first need to understand what they are. The best way to describe them is as being base cabinets with legs. A base cabinet sits on the floor and provides a base for other kitchen-related elements. Its freestanding version is more or less the same thing but completely elevated from the floor.
