4 Benefits of a Kitchen Island

If you’re considering remodeling your kitchen, you’re probably aware of how kitchen islands are a popular option. Why is that so?

Well, every homeowner wishes that their kitchen has enough potential for functionality, storage and aesthetical appearance. Unfortunately, not all kitchens have all three, which is where kitchen islands come in.

If you’re fortunate enough to have the opportunity to design or redesign your kitchen, you’re in for a treat. Here are some interesting advantages of kitchen islands:

1. Additional Cabinetry

Does your kitchen lack storage space? If so, a kitchen island may just be the solution you’re looking for. These fixtures offer homeowners plenty of cabinets, pull-out shelves, drawers and so much more.

Perhaps, you also find yourself running out of space in recycling bins? Well, kitchen islands offer plenty of under-cabinet storage space to add larger or multiple bins to solve your problem.

2. Extra Outlets and Appliances

If you ever hated your previous kitchen for not offering a secondary heating range, or an additional espresso machine that you’re dying to unbox, a kitchen island can solve your problems. You see, it is very easy to hook up your kitchen island with plumbing, gas, and electricity.

By adding additional electrical outlets around your dedicated workspace, you will have the ability to operate various small appliances as well as larger appliances. For instance, you can install a dishwasher right beneath your countertop and make your life a lot easier.

3. Focal Point for Interior Decoration

Other than the practicality offered by a kitchen island, these fixtures bring forth the overall aesthetic appearance of your kitchen while also giving your guests something to focus on besides a plain old wall of cabinetry. For instance, you can use this space to display your children’s best artwork or exhibit your favorite cook books.

Since it offers additional counters, storage space, and a design element, kitchen islands can increase the value of your home significantly more than an otherwise traditional kitchen.

4. Perfect for Children

Whether your children pitch-in to make meals or prepare snacks for themselves, kitchen islands allow younger children to be part of the action because everything can be along their eye-level. For instance, your kitchen counter could easily include a refrigerated drawer or microwave, so they are easily accessible.

Kitchen islands could also help children prepare early breakfasts on a Saturday morning or snacks when they have returned home.
