4. Overloading and Oversizing Islands
In a big room, two islands are often better than one. It’s a mistake to supersize an island, because anything longer than 10 feet is hard to walk around. And if an island is more than 4 feet deep, it’s hard to reach the middle. Overstuffing an island with dinnerware, baskets, and other items creates a similar problem. Make sure no island storage extends beyond the rim of the countertop.
5. Overwhelming a Small Space
In a small kitchen, a small peninsula often works better than an island. Keep your space in mind every step of the way to ensure the best remodel possible. Don’t overwhelm a small space, as there are plenty of options available for a variety of sizes and layouts.
