The kitchen of a home is often its literal and metaphorical heart and center. It is the place where families most often congregate to start their days, to share stories, and to enjoy meals and each other’s company. Often, it is the first room of the house that is considered when the idea of remodeling comes up. In Williamsburg, VA, kitchen remodeling often involves the design and the installation of one key element: the perfect kitchen island.

When designing the ideal island for your new kitchen space, there are a few factors that need to be taken into consideration.

  • First, how big of an island can you actually have? Measure the space you will have available for your island and make sure to pay attention to how much counter space you will need for appliances and drawer storage, as well as to functionally move around the kitchen.
  • Second, choose your materials and countertop. When doing a kitchen remodel, you need to make sure your new area complements the rest of your home and does not look out of place. This will include your new island. Make sure that whatever you choose belongs in your home.
  • Lastly, decide what features you want to have. Do you want pull-out drawers? Do you need more cabinet space? Should you have electrical outlets? Decide what you really want and what will be most helpful in your kitchen.
