Millennial Kitchen Cabinets Remodeling (Part 2)

Houzz says millennials like kitchen cabinets islands. They see the benefits of more countertop square footage, increased storage and space for shi-shi coffee machines and high-tech kitchen cabinets gadgets.

Get the most out of a kitchen island design by:

  • Installing hidden electrical outlets
  • Incorporating something useful on the end cap – open shelving for cookbooks or attractive display items, glass cabinet doors with ambient interior lining, a wine cooler, etc.
  • Extending the countertop overhang to accommodate extra seating
  • Considering whether different countertop and/or cabinet finishes might add desirable contrast.

If you don’t have room for a separate island, see if there’s room for a peninsula, which offers many of the same perks without using as much space.
