A kitchen island adds a new design element to your kitchen that provides additional storage space and serves a practical purpose as well. Whether it is a mobile island that you can put to use when you need it or a permanent structure that offers extra seating or another cooking and food preparation surface, a kitchen island can be a versatile feature in your home.
If you need more storage in your kitchen, an island adds drawers, pull out shelves, cabinets and counter space, an island is an ideal option to make your kitchen more efficient. And if you are looking for room for recycling bins, a kitchen island offers accessible space without interfering with the rest of the kitchen.
A kitchen island can also serve as an informal dining area for the kids or as additional seating when you have company that allows you to interact with your family or guests while meals are being prepared. If your kitchen is small, you could extend your kitchen by taking down a wall to add an island for that open concept design.
There are also some amenities that you could incorporate into a kitchen island, including a sink, refrigerator drawers and an additional cooking area, making your kitchen more functional and useful. You could even add a range hood over a stove/grill and convert your island into a hub of cooking and entertaining.
Whether you use your island for functional and practical purposes or you want it to be the centre of attention, the countertop surface is an important consideration. You can choose from laminate or solid surface man-made finishes, higher grades of solid surfaces or stained concrete, butcher block, granite or custom exotic wood, depending on your budget.
