The Benefits of a Kitchen Island

An island is one of the most common and practical additions to a kitchen. One of the many great things about a kitchen island is that you don’t need to redo the whole kitchen to add an island. That is unless you want to of course. Here are some of the benefits of adding an island in the kitchen.

Countertop Space

If you find yourself constantly searching for an open space on the countertop in the kitchen, an island can help. Islands give you plenty of additional space to work with.


In addition to countertop space, islands also give you lots of additional storage space. Drawers can be installed on both sides of the island so you can store everything from plates and silverware, to dry food, pots and pans, and other utensils.


If you want to go even further with your island, you can install a sink. This is a labor-intensive process, as it requires lots of plumbing work, but it can be done, and if you’re a dedicated chef, it can give you a lot more flexibility in the kitchen. Now we’re cooking!

Great For Company

Islands are great places to set out appetizers when you have company over. They also make for a great place to socialize around during before-dinner drinks.
