KITCHEN ISLANDS AND CART IDEAS
Kitchen islands are easily the most important and functional element of the modern kitchen space. Islands can also be developed in kitchens with not so excessive floor area because it is so versatile that the presence of one island can aide us in doing away with a lot of other floor area consuming elements like cabinets and other storage spaces. A central island can also be a perfect substitute for a kitchen table and at times be even better equipped. In the same vein, kitchen carts are also an extremely helpful addition that we can make to our kitchen space. Movement of trays of food, or drinks or even general stuff becomes easier and less cumbersome when rolled on carts. Carts can also be made more than just functional. Some of the interesting ideas that we can follow and some points that we should care about while making a selection in case of islands and carts are mentioned:
HUES SHOULD MERGE:
The most obvious and also the most important aspect of the island design that we should take care of is the color. The islands can be contrasting with the overall décor of the kitchen or be of the same hue to merge in with the background. But its also important to note that the islands should generally be of sedate and bold colors and avoid bright colors unless its pretty clear that your kitchen can actually hold onto those blight hues without appearing too flashy. Similarly when it comes to carts, we have to proceed to treat them as more than just a trolley on wheels. They should be attention seeking at the very least and spacious enough to be used only once.
LIGHTING FOR ISLANDS:
Lighting for islands is a very significant feature and should be chosen after due consideration to all the activities that the island is expected to play a venue to. Pendant lights are the most preferred for islands but even when it comes to pendant lights the options are so varied and numerous that it would be better to carefully check them out before committing.
USAGE OF CARTS:
The size and design of carts would depend to a large extent on the type and frequency of usage of the carts. Carts of bigger horizontal area should be used in case they are going to be used for a bigger party and is expected to play host to a large gathering. But using a bigger cart for a modest assembly can appear too odd and also give a very vacant view of the cart.
Island carts are like the best of both the worlds. They can quiet easily play the island but at the same time shift the party elsewhere without any fuss whatsoever. Island carts are very useful specially if the house is lacking in floor area.
Islands and carts are useful additions that can make the kitchen that much more functional and efficient when it comes to the various activities and gatherings that take place there. Planning them in a proper manner can add the aesthetic appeal as well which will make them the perfect elements in the house.
