A kitchen island can actually really help revolutionise your kitchen and truly help make it the heart of the home. Read on to find out more details...
For a truly contemporary culinary space, you need to consider having a kitchen island installed, one of the most multifunctional features of this part of the house.
It might seem like something of a luxury – and perhaps unnecessary – purchase to make when you buy a preloved kitchen, but an island can actually really help revolutionise your kitchen and truly help make it the heart of the home.
These days, a lot of families enjoy cooking together and often without a kitchen island there simply isn’t enough space for everyone to do their jobs – too many cooks can spoil the broth, after all! But with an island, you can double the amount of worktop space you’ve got, so cooking becomes an absolute breeze.
Another key point to bear in mind is that islands can be highly multifunctional. They can serve as a space for your children to do their homework while you make dinner, or as a space for your friends to all gather around during a dinner party.
You can also buy kitchen islands these days with all sorts of different functions, not just a worktop and a few drawers. You could, for example, find one that comes with a wine rack or you could use it as a display unit for your favourite pieces of art if there’s enough space in the unit itself.
A good piece of advice is to perhaps think about your kitchen island as a piece of furniture in its own right – that way you’ll end up with something that’s both functional and has form.
