Build Your Kitchen Centerpiece: The Island

Kitchen Island with wine frig

The kitchen island is where the family gathers from morning to night.  Morning coffee for you and  breakfast for kids happens at the kitchen island.  Family paperwork and daily mail gets sorted here.  Messages and reminders are placed on the kitchen island so not to be missed.  Perhaps easy family dinner is enjoyed here too.  In every home, the kitchen island is a centerpiece.  Thoughful design and build experience will help you create the kitchen island that serves your family perhaps for generations.

Storage

You know you and how you use your kitchen.  Let’s design and build an island that works for you with thoughtful storage.  What do you need to store and have easily accessible? That Kitchen-Aide Mixer!  Let’s build a pull out drawer for that.  Do you have a collection of special baking pans or canning supplies?  Let’s design storage that supports your craft.  Drawers for tools, spices, and all that tupperware!

 

Workspace

Do you use your kitchen as a home office station?   Many of our spaces have to multi-task; often the kitchen island is a homework site for kids and a home office station for you.  We like the idea of having kids doing homework in the kitchen with parents nearby for support.  A thoughful kitchen island design with custom cabinetry by AKD Kitchen Contractors will set up all up for success!

Materials

AKD Kitchen Contractors will pair your custom cabinetry with the counter top of your choice including butcher block, granite and marble.  Many options and suppliers to choose from.
