Whether you’re cooking, dining your socialising, the kitchen is a central part of any home.
And when it comes to optimising the function and aesthetic appeal of your kitchen, a kitchen island is sure to become a welcomed addition to your space that the entire family can enjoy.
From providing much needed food prep and cooking space through to creating a ready-made breakfast bar and social area, there are lots of reasons why a kitchen island should be on your wish list when it comes to transforming your home.
We’ve created a guide outlining 4 benefits of investing in a kitchen island.
With so many pots, pans and cooking utensils to accommodate, it can sometimes be difficult to find space in your kitchen to store all of your everyday cooking equipment.
One of the main advantages of integrating an island into your kitchen space is that you will also be able to add lots of storage options. The majority of kitchen islands can be adapted so that they feature lots of integrated storage solutions such as pull out shelves, cabinets and drawers.
Extra seating space
The ultimate casual dining area, a kitchen island will provide you with an inviting space to indulge, drink and socialise with family and friends.
So whether you’re enjoying a causal breakfast or cocktails with friends on a Friday evening, you will be able to enjoy a functional seating area that is at the very heart of your kitchen.
Great for the kids
You really do need eyes in the back of your head when you have little ones… as leave them to their own devices and they are sure to cause lots of mischief.
A kitchen island is a great space for your little ones to play, chat and eat, whilst your preparing dinner. It also means that you can keep a close eye on them whilst you are cooking!
Of course, a kitchen island is also a great way to connect with your kids when you are preparing their favourite dishes due to its central location and social qualities.
Additional cooking space
If you have limited counter space in your kitchen, a kitchen island is the perfect way to create extra food prep and cooking space. This is because you can choose to integrate a sink or hob into its design.
Kitchen islands come in all shapes and sizes, so don’t be put off if you don’t have a big space to work with, there is always ways around it.
And if you’re thinking out renovating your kitchen, you’re certainly in the right place…
