When it comes to creating a large, open plan kitchen with clear zones and boundaries, a kitchen island can be an essential addition. But have you considered using two islands? Well the double island approach is set to be a popular trend this year for large kitchens, and it can bring a range of benefits. So what are the biggest advantages of double kitchen islands? And how can you use these effectively in your kitchen? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design professionals. And this is our guide to everything you should know about using two kitchen islands.
What are the advantages of double kitchen islands?
There are several benefits to using two kitchen islands. These include:
- Creating purposeful spaces- with two different kitchen islands you can create two different spaces for two different purposes. For example, you can use one kitchen island for storage and seating, while you use the other for food preparation and counter top space. This can make your kitchen more practical.
- Double the storage- no matter how large your kitchen is, storage is always an issue. With two kitchen islands you can have twice the amount of storage you would expect from just one.
- Control the flow- with two kitchen islands set up to create two different zones, you can control the flow off foot traffic in the kitchen, and create clear and defined areas for different roles. This could mean you have more space for food preparation and cooking, while the rest of the kitchen is still easily accessible for the rest of the household.
- Additional appliances and fixtures- this is one of the most overlooked benefits of using double kitchen islands. As part of one, or both of the islands, you have space for kitchen appliances. So whether you could use a mini wine cooler, a double sink, or even a dishwasher.
