Contrary to what you may think, freestanding kitchen cabinets are actually more easy to install than the conventional types. You may not even need the help of a professional which brings us to what is possibly the greatest advantage of all: the ability to retake control of your kitchen and to be in complete charge of its look, configuration, placement and even installation.
Just about every kitchen can benefit from an island because it provides space for food preparation, cooking and entertaining. It is the focal point of a kitchen and the rest of the space revolves around it. Gone are the days when it was just a set of cabinets topped with a counter.
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.
Strictly regarding the space above the kitchen counter, there’s a number of ways in which you can use it in order to maximize storage. An option is to add a tall corner cabinet which rests on the counter and has square-shaped interior shelves. The cabinet can have glass panels so you can see inside without having to open the door.
