5 Reasons Why You Need a Kitchen Island

The kitchen is the central part of the home. It is where you gather to cook, eat and socialise.

It's also a place where memories are made, from family dinners to holiday gatherings.  So, if you are thinking about refurbishing your kitchen or choosing a new one, let us give you 5 reasons why you should consider adding a kitchen island.

Extra counter space

If you find that you don’t have enough space in your kitchen to put plates out when dishing up, or space to place food, then a kitchen island solves this problem by offering additional countertop space. Those that enjoy entertaining or are used to cooking family meals will find this particularly handy.

A place to relax

In every home, the kitchen is a place of comfort. It's a warm and inviting space where we gather to refuel and reconnect. Adding an island to your kitchen offers an informal space where you can relax and enjoy a cup of coffee or a few glasses of wine with friends, and it provides extra seating for guests.

Additional Storage

Have you run out of space in your kitchen cupboards? If so, a kitchen island offers additional storage space for your pots, pans, and other cooking essentials. You can also use it to store your dishes and silverware.

Great for the kids

 A kitchen island can make the perfect place for the kids to hang out and do their homework, help with dinner, or unwind and tell you all about their day at school or college. If you have small children, it provides an area where they can eat and play while you can keep an eye on them.

Islands can be fully bespoke 

Kitchen islands can be customised to fit your specific needs and the layout of your kitchen. You can choose the size, shape, material, and colour that best fits your lifestyle requirements.
