Harleysville, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/03/2017 -- An island in a kitchen can prove itself quite resourceful. It provides extra seating, additional storage, extra electrical outlets, and more counter space. Gehman Design Remodeling can fit the perfect island into plans for kitchen remodeling in Lansdale, PA.
First, the right amount of floor space is needed. The rule of thumb is to have three feet on all sides of the island. Without that much space available, a peninsula might be the more practical choice while still receiving the benefits of an island. Fixing one end to the wall won't take up as much floor space.
It can also serve as another place to sit down and eat, although perhaps not ideal for a formal dinner. It is a great spot for the kids to have a snack, do homework, or both. If the dining room is on the smaller side, the extra seats will come in handy when company is over.
Extra storage is also a plus. With an island comes more drawers and more cabinets to store appliances, utensils, tableware, and anything else one may need in the kitchen. It is an excellent place to hide a pull-out garbage bin.
Supplementary electrical outlets come in handy as well. They are optimal for small appliances like blenders or toaster ovens, which can be stored right underneath when not in use.

Producing the best kitchen remodeling and bathroom remodeling in the Collegeville, PA area, they accomplish beautiful islands that are well thought-out.
