FACT! A recent survey indicated that over 63% of people opting for an open-plan Kitchen ideally look to incorporate an Island Unit.
Island Units have been around for LONG time. In the 1950's they were a device employed to make life easier for housewives! In the 80's our love for them waned, but they're well and truly back in vogue now. If you opt for plainer cabinetry throughout your Kitchen, use your Island Unit as a canvas for integrating feature lighting, colourful stools or decorative draws. Whatever you go for, an Island Unit will always be point of focus in your design. Don't forget that incorporating gas, electrics or plumbing into an Island Unit typically increases project costs by around £500 - £1,000.
Of course, not every Kitchen suits an Island Unit and don't despair if this applies to your space. There are plenty of ways to create the wow factor without this addition. Pop in and chat to one of our experienced designers - you'll be surprised at what is possible.
