Styling is a simple and effective way to make your kitchen a warm & inviting space for your guests.
Maximise your Island benchtops
Island benches offer stylish and functional preparation space in your kitchen and allow your space to flow beautifully and easily. They create a beautiful gathering space for your family and/or guests when you’re entertaining and allow you to maximise storage which is key in a hardworking kitchen.
The layout of your island bench can play a big role in terms of how you use it for entertaining and we recommend considering the following in terms of appliances and accessories to consider for the design.
What appliances & accessories should you include?
A sink and tap are the most common element found in a kitchen island with a dishwasher underneath it. Incorporating cooktops are also becoming a popular design choice- just remember you will need a rangehood above the cooktop, which will obviously impact on your design. But really the options are endless- you can consider wine fridges and microwaves as well!
A big trend in Australian kitchen design at the moment is to have nothing on the island, as it becomes a large gathering space- acting as a large dining table, so this is also worth considering as it works brilliantly in both large and small spaces.
