Post Image

Assembling a planned kitchen with an island is the dream of many people’s consumption, mainly due to the influence of North American cinema and series in the imagination of Brazilians. After all, this style of kitchen is very common in the United States, both for the beauty and the functionality provided by this architectural project.

And if you also want to have this decoration in your home, you need to check this article full of ideas and tips to inspire you to build your planned kitchen with an island of dreams!

Tips for setting up your kitchen with island

First, to assemble your planned kitchen with an island, it is necessary to adapt the project to the size of this room. For this, it is essential to leave a free space around the island so as not to interfere with circulation in the environment. Therefore, the island is generally not recommended for small environments, as the minimum recommended circulation size is 70 cm.

Secondly, it is necessary to think about the visual result provided by the entire environment. In other words, materials and finishes used on the island must be in accordance with the decoration of the rest of the kitchen.

And to get the result you want and still save, it’s important to seek the guidance of an architect or designer to plan your environment. In addition, it is also necessary to make budgets with different suppliers and companies that work with planned kitchens.

Also remember that, when setting up your project, you can install a cooktop, hood, countertop and even a sink on your planned island. Therefore, it is also essential to evaluate the electrical and plumbing installation of your home and, if necessary, budget for the materials and labor required for the installation of all appliances and water points in your kitchen.

Regarding the decoration of your kitchen, in the next topics we cover the details to help you come up with ideas for decorating this room.

Think about the highlight of your kitchen with island

The main differential of this type of kitchen is the presence of the island, which acts as a prominent element, as it is a multifunctional piece of furniture, detached from the rest of the environment. One of the benefits of its installation is that this piece of furniture can have different sizes, as long as it follows a standard height between 90 and 110 cm, following the height generally used on the sink countertop.

In addition, when planning your planned kitchen with an island, it is also important to choose the ideal lighting for that environment, especially to light the island, regardless of the function performed there. In this case, one of the most used luminaires is the suspended pendant, but you can also choose other luminaires, such as chandeliers, ceiling lights and LED spots, which can even be accompanied by the installation of a decorated plaster ceiling.

And to help you choose the ideal island for your kitchen, in the next topics you will find projects with islands of different sizes to inspire you.

Small Island

Ideal for smaller spaces, the small island can also be used when you don’t want to install appliances or sinks, or when you want to use the open kitchen concept, that is, without partitions with the room. Check out the examples below!
