Looking to upgrade your kitchen and bring it screaming into the 21st century? Kitchen islands are undoubtedly one of the greatest kitchen ideas of recent years, and have grown to be extraordinarily popular with Canadians – and why not? With their stylish functionality, it’s hard to imagine how kitchens at one point simply didn’t have this feature. Handyman Connection of Ottawa is your local, reliable expert on kitchen upgrades, and here we offer some suggestions.
You don’t need to go ultra-modern with your kitchen island. Sometimes, traditional looks work just as well – go for the antique bakery table for that rustic, old-timey and romantic feeling. You can also find wooden kitchen islands with paneling and storage options – if you constantly feel like your kitchen is cluttered, a kitchen island with storage options offers a place for you to store your recipe books, pots and pans and even your kitchen appliances that you use infrequently.
A kitchen island isn’t just about storage and design, though – it is also a model of how to marry the social aspects of a kitchen along with function. If you love throwing dinner parties and getting your kids to help you out with food preparation, a kitchen island provides a social hub. Not only can you get four people to face each other as they prepare food, it’s a great place to place party nibbles and “help yourself” foods at BBQs and parties. It’s also the ideal place to eat a quick breakfast before going to work.
Kitchen islands have grown in popularity for one reason: they’re highly functional and capable fittings to a kitchen that can be customized to fit a kitchen perfectly without stealing too much space from the room or cluttering it up. Need a kitchen that you can move around, or a fitted one? Is it a storage space or more of a kitchen table? Do you plan to use the area above your kitchen island as a storage space for pans? What materials interest you? Kitchen islands are versatile enough that you’ll be able to find one that fits you and your needs perfectly.
If you’re tired of looking at kitchen islands and want one of your own, call Handyman Connection of Ottawa today. Book a free consultation and estimate session at a time of your choosing, and you can discuss your ideas with us, as well as discover new ideas. You’re under no obligation to hire any of our services, but you will get a clear idea of how we can help, and how much it’ll cost.
