How To Make Double Islands Work In Your Kitchen
Creating a beautifully designed and functional space is an art that enhances your living experience. Whether you're starting from scratch or looking to refresh your current home, our interior design tips will help you transform your living spaces into stunning, personalized havens. From clever space utilization to incorporating trending aesthetics, let's dive into the world of interior design and discover the secrets to crafting a stylish and inviting home.
Be specific about function
We recommend using one island for practical tasks such as food prep and cooking, and the other one for entertaining. That way, your guests won’t cramp your style when you’re busy creating a culinary sensation, and you can ensure everything you need is to hand. With a L’Atelier Paris Haute Design kitchen, rangetop options such as burners, griddles and custom-made sinks can be set into an island unit to create the ultimate, professional-grade cooking station. Your other kitchen island can be fitted with a built-in wine cooler as well as a countertop ice trough to make sure the champagne is chilled and ready to go.
Position the islands for maximum impact
Use your dual islands as a visual device to draw the eye towards your kitchen’s focal point. If your range is positioned against a wall, for example, the islands can be placed facing each other in front of the range. This serves to steer the focus in the direction of the star of the show. It’s also important to ensure you leave enough space between the islands to allow you and your guests to move around the kitchen easily. We advise leaving at least three feet between the islands and any other kitchen units in order to create enough clearance.
Add in custom-made storage
With double islands comes double the amount of storage, so make sure you maximise this valuable space while creating moments of unexpected luxury. Why not introduce bespoke storage options such as L’Atelier Paris’ custom-made spice storage drawers or handmade cutlery dividers lined with exquisitely soft leather? At L’Atelier Paris Haute Design, we have a wide variety of made-to-measure, chateau-inspired island styles to choose from. Ready to start planning your luxury bespoke French kitchen?
