A kitchen island is something that you should consider for any medium to large kitchen. This can be used effectively for a range of different purposes, to really add function and practicality to your kitchen space. But what are the different purposes for your kitchen island? And how can you be sure to use this effectively? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design experts. And this is our guide to everything you should know about the different ways to use a kitchen island.
Different purposes for your kitchen island
There are a number of different ways to use a kitchen island in your kitchen space. These include:
- Adding storage space- a kitchen island will generally have cupboards and cabinets underneath that can be very effective for additional storage. In any sized kitchen, large or small, a lack of storage space is generally one of the top concerns and complaints from homeowners. But adding a kitchen island can be one possible solution for kitchens with enough floor space.
- Additional worktop space- if you need additional worktop space, or worktop space that is closer to the entertainment area of an open plan kitchen, a kitchen island can be the perfect solution. This worktop space can be used for food preparation and baking.
- A sink counter- alternatively, if your kitchen worktop space is ample, you might decide to install a sink into the kitchen island instead. Whether you choose a farmhouse or apron sink, an over-mount sink, or an under-mount sink, a kitchen island can be a good option. This even allows you to install a second sink, if two kitchen sinks would be a practical choice for your kitchen space.
- A seating area- finally, your kitchen island can be used to provide an effective seating area in your kitchen. This can be achieved by extending one side like a breakfast bar, or removing some of the the under-counter storage to create a seating space.
