When redesigning or remodeling a kitchen, every homeowner should consider adding a kitchen island to the room. Islands come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so they can work even if you have a smaller kitchen. Continue reading to learn about the many benefits of adding an island to your kitchen!
One of the most significant advantages of a kitchen island is the added storage space it provides. If your kitchen is smaller and doesn’t have many cabinets, you can design an island with plenty of cabinets or shelving underneath or above it. The great thing about kitchen islands is how customizable they are- you can add anything from a built-in wine rack to mug holders and everything in-between! An island also provides plenty of counter space to hold appliances such as a blender, coffee machine, toaster, and more.
A kitchen island also adds a great space for some additional, casual seating. Depending on the height of your island, you can add a few barstools and chairs for an area to hang out with friends while you cook and drink wine, or for the kids to quickly eat breakfast or do their homework at night. It’s beneficial to have seating so close to the kitchen as hosts can continue to entertain while preparing a meal, and parents can get their kids involved in the cooking process.
If you have limited counter space, a kitchen island is the perfect addition to your remodel. An island is great for any type of kitchen preparation, but you can even customize the island to be a specialty workstation. For instance, design your island to include a sink, a built-in cutting board, a knife sharpener, and open counter space. If you do a lot of baking, design your island to include built-in cooling racks, multiple outlets for all of your appliances, and storage spaces for all of your baking sheets and bowls.
