Architect's advice: 4 island kitchen plans

The island kitchen is a kitchen composed of one or more module (s), called island (s), receiving furniture or household appliances. It can also be an L-shaped or I-shaped kitchen base, to which is added an island in the center of the room. This trendy establishment is friendly, functional and decorative. Rather reserved for large volumes because it requires a certain circulation space, it offers a spacious and airy kitchen, often associated with a dining area. The island can be of different shapes, although it is most often rectangular, depending on the shape and style of the kitchen. In addition to its very pleasant contemporary aesthetic, this location has the main advantage of avoiding unnecessary travel.
