A large kitchen island offers so many benefits: extra cabinetry and amenities,
work and display space, and additional seating.
Depending on the size of your island you can really increase your storage space by adding cabinets, drawers, pull-out shelving, even a hidden garbage or recycle bin. The possibilities are endless.
Want a prep sink? An island is a great way to integrate that into your kitchen. And with all that counter space you have the perfect work area for chopping and assembling your favorite cuisine. Adding amenities like a prep sink, a dishwasher and/or an under counter microwave makes your kitchen more useful and functional.
Have kids? Well, then they have homework or some kind of project. An island gives them plenty of room to get that work done. Have little ones? Bringing their arts and crafts projects to the kitchen island is a good solution for keeping them busy while keeping an eye on them. An island is also an ideal spot to display those fresh flowers or a beautiful bowl of fruit.
Whether you need more seating or just want a place for a quick bite, adding an extension to your island's countertop and some chairs or stools creates an informal dining area that provides the perfect spot for you to entertain or just hang with your family.
And that's the beauty of a kitchen island.
