Some islands are for preparing food. Often they have a prep sink or a kitchen cook top in them. This can be a good area to put an under-counter microwave or a wine fridge in also.
Kitchen islands are common in modern kitchens. Other than providing workspace, they also allow people to sit and eat in the kitchen. They are often the focal point in the kitchen as they are placed in the centre.
Kitchen islands are critical components in any kitchen. A multipurpose surface, they allow prep work, cooking, eating, working, and entertaining. For that reason, they’re also one of the most requested features in homes, both in purchases and renovations, but kitchen islands can vary tremendously in size and style, and aren’t right for every home.
Nothing says the perimeter of your kitchen island has to be symmetrical. Have a little fun when it comes to the shape. Whether it's crescent shaped, wavy or completely indefinable, if it suits your taste (and fits your kitchen and your budget), go for it.
Kitchen islands are the most frequently requested kitchen-design element in homes. Check out this array of kitchen island photos and design ideas.
If your dream kitchen incorporates an island, and you’re worried you just don’t have room, think of other options, like a mobile island on castor wheels that can be moved about the space, or an island that’s only 18" deep and a bit shorter than most.
