Using a kitchen island effectively

Kitchen islands are very popular for medium to large sized kitchens as these can bring a range of practical benefits. But how can these be used effectively, for the most benefit? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen experts. And we offer something to suit every home, in any style. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about using a kitchen island effectively.

What are the different options for using a kitchen island effectively?

There are a number of different options for using a kitchen island effectively, and these include:

  • Creating additional counter space- one of the most popular ways to use a kitchen island is to provide additional counter space in part of your kitchen. This can act as a bridge from one area to another in an open plan space, while offering space for food preparation, baking and cooking.
  • Additional storage space- storage is an issue even in the largest of kitchens and a kitchen island can provide a good amount of additional storage, including drawers and cabinets. This can be the perfect option for cumbersome items like pots and pans.
  • Adding seating- a kitchen island can include a built in table or bar stool for effective seating in the kitchen. This is great for family kitchens as well as for more relaxed or casual dining and it can really help to bring a practical benefit to your kitchen space.
  • Adding another sink- a kitchen island can add space for another sink, or even just the one kitchen sink, leaving your worktop space free elsewhere. There are advantages to installing two sinks in the kitchen though, including being able to have a designated hand washing and food washing sink.
