Italian Kitchen Design with Island by Arclinea

The increasingly popular theitalian kitchen islands are designer in analogy with the restaurant kitchens, where all parts of the working zone are accessible at any time.

The kitchen island is used in spacious places, alone or combined with the living-room or dining-room. Such planning is convenient, as kitchen drawers can be placed on the walls, while the working zone is at the centre of the kitchen. There are no functionality limits. The oven, sink and a chest of drawers are situated on the island. A table or desktop, which are to be used for other activities, can be added in the Italian kitchen

The Italian kitchens with island are very suitable for contemporary small households, where the living-room, dining-room and kitchen are combined to a single room. For this type of kitchen a hung ceiling is needed, above which the pipes for the water installations, electric cables and aspiration are to be placed. A single column in the centre of the island can take control of all of these functions. The well designed Italian kitchen with island is a multifunctional piece of furnishing, which provides an opportunity for both kitchen storage and dining-room furniture set. Rounded kerbs are not only a designer decision, but also a compulsory requirement because of the housewife’s mobility in this area.

The next important step in the Italian kitchen design with Islands is the colour choice. One option is a contrasting combination between two colours: black and white, white and blue, or black and red. Having a light colour in the contrasting combination will create the notion of more light and freshness in the room. In order for the interior to not look too cold, a warm colour should be added, which would make a balance. For a white and blue combination a warm yellow tone would be a good alternative. The colour of the Italian kitchen desktop needn’t be the same as the rest of the kitchen, as long as they suit each other. Materials, used for the desktop, include granite, marble and thermo plot.

An interesting idea is to place ornamented enforcements under the frontal part of the desktop of your Italian Kitchen. They will serve as a beautiful accent, which underlines the main function of the kitchen island.
In kitchens, which have an island configuration, a second sink, placed on the island, is often present. If it’s possible, a dishwasher can also be placed there. That way everything is within a hand’s reach without any unnecessary movements having to be made.

The built in lighting over the island turns it into a real oasis, under which the family can gather for lunch.
The kitchen island guarantees a convenient, well arranged kitchen with a pleasant atmosphere.
