5 Benefits Of A Kitchen Island

Posted by John C. on 2021-04-23

Adding a kitchen island has many practical, functional, and decorative benefits. With the variety of options in style and use, adding a kitchen island can add a whole new dimension to the room. Adding a kitchen island is not easy, but if you’re remodeling, it might be a perfect time to add one. For this blog post, we are going to look at some of the benefits of adding in a kitchen island, regardless of the size.

Storage Space

In addition to the work surface, a kitchen island can also provide you with storage space. Whether it has cabinets and drawers underneath or you use it for small appliances, it can help you declutter your kitchen. If you want an island but have a small kitchen, rolling islands can be a perfect fit. These cart-style islands offer the storage and work surface, but they are easily movable when you need them out of the way.


More Seating

Having too little seating can be frustrating. By adding a kitchen island, you immediately create more seating for friends and family. Depending on the size of your island, you can seat between two and six people. With the extra seating, the island can also be used as a space for your kids to their homework or enjoy breakfast.


Space for Extra Appliances and Outlets

By adding more counter space to your kitchen with an island, you’ll be able to add extra appliances and outlets. You can add a stovetop, an oven, or a sink to create your dream kitchen island. But keep in mind that gas, electricity, and plumbing need to be hooked up to your island. By adding an electrical outlet, you can also add any appliances like an espresso machine.

A New Workstation

Whether you run a catering company or need more space to cook, a kitchen island adds a new workstation. Alternatively, you can turn this counter space into a workspace for your kids or as a home office space. It can also be an excellent place for your cookbooks, as it would provide storage and usage space from them away from the everyday mess of the kitchen. The possibilities for your new kitchen workstation are endless.

An Awesome Focal Point

Besides the functional uses, an island can also highlight the overall style of your kitchen. It gives your guests something to focus on other than your wall cabinets and fridge. You can take advantage of this new focal point by adding elements that show off your personality. You can use this space to display your favorite cookbooks or your favorite bunch of flowers. It also gives guests somewhere to huddle around when gathering in the kitchen.
