Do I need a kitchen island?


– So today, we’re talking
about kitchen islands. (rock music) – So there’s lots of
things to discuss when it comes to kitchen
islands, and it’s always a desirable product you
can have in a kitchen. When you’ve got the space,
it’s definitely something I’d highly recommend. But what you’ve got to
think about when you have a kitchen island is, what you want it for. ‘Cause some people like
to cook on the island, be in the centre of
attention, some people love to have their sink in the
island, and have the hub on the other side. Some people just love the
island just to be a centrepiece to the room, so it’s
purely for storage only. But what you need to think
about is, if you’re going to have an island, is it going
to have any seating around it? ‘Cause what you can do,
is you can extend out from the cabinetry, and
have a nice row of seats. Or what you can do, I’ve
got in the showroom here; is where you extend off
the actual island itself, making it longer, and having the seating, away from the cooking or the washing area. Now with the extended islands,
you can have a lower tables, you can have normal kitchen,
dining room table chairs, or you can have the kitchen
stools if you have it raised as the same height as the island. So there’s lots of things you need to think about the island. So is it going to be rectangle,
or is it going to be curved, is it going to be angled, is
the extractor fan going to come down from the ceiling as well? These are lots of things you need to take into consideration. Recently we do lots of L-shaped islands, because we’ve just got the space. There’s lots of room
to play with and it is a real big centrepiece to a
lovely, desirable kitchen. So that’s really why I want
to talk about with islands today, and that’s what we’ll
be discussing the little details, and the options
that are available. So, I’ve created loads of
blogs, videos, and articles, all designed to help you with
your home improvement project. So go check them out, and
I’ll catch you next time. (laughing) – [Gary] Where to come up. – [Camera Man] Yeah. (laughing) Oh, yeah? – So I come up, and say– Quick or slow? – [Gary] I say, – Today, we’re talking
about kitchen islands.
