Pros and Cons of a Double Island Kitchen

Double island kitchen

Kitchen styles come and go, but if there is one thing that we cannot deny, it’s the fact that we need kitchen islands. We need a functional space in the kitchen where we can cook our meals. The problem is that when we want to cook more elaborate meals, we never seem to have enough space to do our business.
Enter double islands – this involves (you guessed) bringing two islands in the kitchen. Before deciding whether this is the right choice for your kitchen or not, you need to determine all the advantages and drawbacks. This guide is here to help you out.
How many times have you had to go around your bigger kitchen island just to get to that space that you wanted to reach? Well, let‘s say that instead of one big island, you get two smaller ones. This way, whenever you want to pass, you will no longer have to go all the way around; you can simply pass through between them.

Ideas for Remodeling a Large Kitchen

Kitchen Remodeling

Large kitchens seem like a dream to have. All that space that you can do whatever you want with, all those possibilities – and you still have no idea what to do with it. A large kitchen is quite difficult to renovate because you have to add enough items to make it look complete – without going into the “too much” zone.
Since you already have a fairly large kitchen, you should not be afraid of the fact that dark cabinets will make your kitchen seem small and claustrophobic. In fact, it will actually be the opposite – the kitchen will look elegant and cozy, mostly because the dark cabinets will bring the space together. You can go for black, as you can never go wrong with it – or you may go for any other dark shades. Earthly colors are quite trendy these days. Do you want to make your large kitchen look even larger? In that case, you should definitely go for tall cabinets that go straight into the ceiling. Not only will you get more storage space out of this move, but it will also make your kitchen seem less cluttered and more organized.

Traditional Cabinets vs Modern Cabinets

Modern Cabinets

Traditional cabinets are known to be very sturdy and durable thanks to having a framed design. Therefore, they are a good option if you want to have a nice, durable kitchen décor and not change it for a very long time.
If you want to get something more detailed and with more texture, traditional cabinets are really the way to go. They have a lot of texture. Some of the textures that you can get with traditional ones are exposed wood grain, glossy wood finishes, beadboard, and many others. These are a great way to make sure you add a traditional aspect to your kitchen, one that your guests will admire and compliment. With traditional cabinets, you won’t see as many bright colors as you do with more modern designs. With traditional ones, you will get the darker, old-fashioned look, with woody colors like brown and other earthy shades.

Kitchen Cabinet Organizer Types and Ideas to Consider

kitchen organizer

Regardless of how well-thought-of your kitchen cabinets may be, we can all agree that it is sometimes quite difficult to keep things organized. The average kitchen cabinets have one or two fixed shelves where you may place your belongings – but sometimes, you have so many items in your kitchen that it can be rather difficult for you to organize everything properly by type.
Granted, we all have shelving that we put to good use in the kitchen – but what about the exterior of the cabinet, where all the space is let to waste? If you have unused space on the kitchen cabinet laterals, invest in some small shelves that you may attach yourself to the cabinet. These shelves may be used to store a variety of small items, such as your cookbooks or the spices that you normally use during your cooking session.
Cabinet doors are also one of the things of a cabinet that lets space go to waste. This is why you might want to invest in an over-the-door caddy, to organize the small things that always seem to be all over the place.
