Do Small Kitchens Need an Island? Does Placement Matter?

If you’re renovating a kitchen, then there are many questions you need to ask yourself. In particular, you should be putting thought into the island that you install — or decide not to install, in some cases. If you have a smaller kitchen, for instance, it may be best to stay away from an island, altogether. Trying to add an island where it doesn’t fit can make the space feel even more cramped. Instead, consider using this space to add additional cabinets or storage. When you do install an island, just remember that placement matters. Make sure that it’s positioned somewhere it can be conveniently used. For more kitchen renovation tips, simply contact us.

What are the limitations
on an inspection?

A real estate inspection or home inspection is not an appraisal or a check for compliance with building codes; it’s also not an evaluation of environmental hazards. See the NYS Standards of Practice for more information on the limitations of a home inspection.
