A kitchen island can make a striking centrepiece to any kitchen. Not only do they look great and give your kitchen another dimension, but they also have many benefits when it comes to utilising your kitchen to it’s full potential. If you have some additional space beyond the area that has been allocated to units and appliances, an island is definitely something to consider when you’re going through the process of designing your space with our design consultants.

Today, we wanted to share some of the advantages of opting for a kitchen island when it comes to planning your new kitchen design.

  1. Extra Storage Options
    When it comes to designing the perfect kitchen, more often than not the more storage you can achieve the more grateful you’ll be in the long run. A lack of storage can contribute to cluttered benches that get in the way with your kitchen’s day to day use!
  2. Additional Seating
    Whether you need an extra space for the children to do their homework, or a spot for someone to sit and chat to you whilst you cook up the next meal – the kitchen island provides a great alternative to typical dining room seating.
  3. More Worktop Space
    A kitchen island opens up new possibilities for kitchen prep, giving you a whole new area to chop, peel and grate without feeling confined or short of space.
  4. Extra Appliances
    Whether you need a new home for your kitchen, kettle and toaster, or just need a place to home something new – an island also provides you with the opportunity to expand your appliance collection.
  5. Improve Time with Family
    A kitchen island is often the heart of any kitchen, the perfect place for your family to gather first thing in the morning or at the end of a long day.
