What do you use your island outlets for?
We've had to regroup. The custom island I had planned has had to go by the wayside since we've pretty much run out of money. So.... Ikea to the rescue! A bunch of cabinets in a somewhat related configuration yields an island with one drawer cabinet on each side of the island (two on one side to accommodate a sink as well). And a bunch of panels to hide the "sides" of the cabinets and have them all match.
I have to incorporate a switch for the ceiling fan somewhere on the island because code requires it, so I know that will probably have to be on one of the side panels. But, I'd originally planned on outlets as well. With the new configuration, incorporating the boxes for the outlets is going to be difficult.
So my question: what do you plug into the outlets on your island? Where are they located? Most of my workhorse appliances - mixer, blender, crockpot, etc. -- will be located on the counter behind the island and will have their own outlets. The island is probably going to be used mostly for prep, and for baking. So the only thing I can think of that I might want to plug in on the island is an immersion blender.
What am I missing?
