The kitchen is a room that gets a lot of attention and a lot of the hottest new design trends are geared towards turning the kitchen into a multi-functional space that is design savvy, highly functional and a great space for entertaining. One popular feature in today’s kitchens is a kitchen island. If you live in a condo, making room for a kitchen island may be tricky but well worth the work!
Create the Space
If you have an open concept condo, the existing dining area can become the perfect spot for a kitchen island! By designing an island that includes seating space, you can maximize the use of the space and allow for a more functional island space as well! In the space below, the dining space was used to allow for a much larger island while incorporating a dining option as well. (See more of this kitchen makeover here.)
Make it a Focal Point
The kitchen island is a natural place for family and guests to congregate, so make it the centerpiece it deserves to be. Both marble and granite countertops look luxurious and add significant value to your home. As well as adding more workspace to your kitchen, marble and granite are durable, easy to maintain options for your island countertop. Complete the aesthetic with a stand-out light fixture that really makes a statement.
Make it Double-duty
Adding an island to your condo kitchen is a great solution for creating extra storage and counter space for cooking or food preparation. With a few chairs, it often doubles as a breakfast bar, but why stop there? Add an integrated beverage fridge and sink to create a built-in bar, the perfect place for guests to gather when you entertain!
Make it Functional
Add more function to your basic kitchen island with the addition of a cooktop, sink or dishwasher. Don’t let complicated or expensive plumbing work stand in your way. The SANIVITE® from SANIFLO® is a drain water pump ideally suited for use anywhere in the home where additional plumbing fixtures are needed. It pumps waste water away from a variety of sources such as a kitchen sink, bar sink or dishwasher. The above-the-floor pump is small enough to fit conveniently within a cabinet without taking up too much space. It’s the perfect personalized solution for adding kitchen plumbing without the hassle.
