  • Opening Intro -

    Perhaps during your home cleaning, you have decided that you would like to install a kitchen island in the kitchen renovation process.

    The island is a decent functional feature to any kitchen.


You will need some basic carpentry skills as we delve into the instructions of how to install your kitchen island. Don’t get intimidated – everything will pay off at the end. The kitchen island will be quite productive in the long run.

Follow these instructions.

  • Think hard and think big. See where you want the island to be and pick a strategically spot. You will then need to outline of the base of the island on your floor with the usage of painter’s tape. Before you actually place it don’t forget to do kitchen and general house cleaning so that you don’t leave dirt between the floor and the brand new island.
  • Next turn the island cabinet on its side to access the underneath area of the island base. Measure the free spaces along the inside edge of the base of the cabinet. The proper measures are important because renovations are hard to do if you don’t have all the information.
  • You will attach wooden blocks to the floor to fit into those spaces, using the outline of the perimeter on the floor as guide. Then remove the painter’s tape. This is the preparatory stage; and now you are almost done with the job. Use a good house cleaner before you continue, though – it’s still important to place the island on a clean space.
  • The island will then securely fit over those solid wooden blocks. This will keep your island securely in place to enjoy and use. And now all you have to do is focus on maintenance; you will also have to do counter kitchen cleaning to keep the new addition of your home bright and shiny, and ready to use for the next time you decide to cook. Now go back to your new island and start enjoying it.
