If you’re undergoing a kitchen remodel and you want to add some luxury to your space, consider a kitchen island. No matter the size of your kitchen, there are many types of islands to choose from—from mobile kitchen island carts to stationary islands with extra seating. If you have the space for an island, it’s a great addition to any kitchen and comes with an array of benefits for your home:
Additional Storage: One of the biggest appeals to adding a kitchen island is the addition of extra storage space. If you’re planning a remodel, you can design an island with cabinets or shelving underneath or above it. There are endless customizable options to consider, from built in wine rack to coffee mug holder, the island will make your kitchen much more organized.
Extra Seating: If you’re frustrated by the lack of seating in your kitchen, adding an island will provide extra places for your friends and family to sit. It’s also a great place for kids to do their homework and for the family to gather round and enjoy some conversation.
A Separate Workstation: If you tend to spend lots of time in the kitchen cooking, you may need additional counter space. You can customize your island with a sink, built in cutting board or even a chopping block. This separate workstation will allow you to prepare your food with ease without disturbing the rest of your kitchen space.
Added Outlets: Outlets are a commodity in the kitchen. An island allows for added electrical outlets, that will allow you to operate small appliances from your kitchen island, and large appliances, like a dishwasher, can be installed in the space beneath the countertop.
Since a kitchen island provides additional storage and counter space, they can increase the value of your home, and as a design element, adds something special to an otherwise typical kitchen.
