Appearance

All of the different types of kitchen islands come with a variety of finish materials to best suit every home. You can even customize your island by selecting the materials used for the countertops, cabinets, and other elements. You can go with a two tone look or select one consistent hue.

Key Accessories

Kitchen island lighting is key in making the most of your extra workspace. Go with pendant lights that add to the overall design and illuminate the area with cool tones. Beyond lighting, you might also want to add outlets or a kickboard vacuum to make the space even more functional.

Across all of these areas, your contractor can help make sure that your selections fit your budget and complement your existing home design.

Clearances and Requirements

Before you can move forward with installing kitchen island projects, your contractor has to verify that the space meets all the requirements, such as:

  • At least 36 inches of clearance in all directions
  • Around 3 feet of space between opposing drawers
  • One outlet for every counter that’s 12-inches wide
  • Acquisition of permits for all plumbing and electrical work

Your contractor knows how to do the job to code to ensure your countertop installation goes smoothly. He/she can even make sure that your kitchen island lighting meets all the code requirements for your area.

Joplin M.

Kitchen Renovation, Los Angeles

Oasis Builders and Neev are hands down the absolute BEST! Having never done any construction or renovations of any kind, the whole process of renovating a new kitchen was so daunting to think about, but from the moment we first met Neev, we were put at ease and we knew he was the one! Neev was the first contractor we met with when shopping out contractors, but we did our due diligence to meet with at least 5 more. He set the bar so high on our first meeting that no one else even came close! He was so personable and super professional, understood our vision while also offering such great insight on the project as a whole. Every step of the way he was right there with us, incredibly patient and making sure everything was going to plan. His team is very hard working, always professional and always helpful and everything they did looked just spectacular in the end. Highly, highly recommended!!

I hired Oasis Builders for my full kitchen renovation and I could not be more happy with the service Neev and his team provided. Home remodeling is always tough, you never know what to expect. But thanks to Neev, we got the job done and the results are SPECTACULAR! What sets Oasis Builders head and shoulders above the rest is the level of care, consideration and compassion. No matter what obstacle we faced, Neev was right there with a solution and how we could move the project forward. Neev genuinely cares about keeping his clients happy, he is always quick to respond, he kept me abreast of all progress and the outcome was AMAZING. I absolutely LOVE my new kitchen and I highly recommend Oasis Builders to anyone needing a professional and fair-priced remodel.
