It’s pretty safe to say that having an island in the kitchen, not only looks visually pleasing, but its benefits also reach far beyond just the visual aspects. And no, we aren’t talking about a tropical vacation in the middle of your home. We are, however, most definitely talking about adding a splash of kitchenware paradise and festivities to bask around.
When looking at any kitchen, it’s always clear that the kitchen is the heart and soul of any home. The kitchen is the one area which accompanies you on sleepless nights, the room which hosts the sound of guilty pitter-patter of footsteps, backwards and forwards, as you seek solace at the back of an empty fridge. It’s the place where the smell of mom’s home-made pie and steamed veggies lures you to on a Sunday afternoon.
It’s the powerhouse, within a house. So, will you really benefit from a kitchen island addition?
The Social Totem
An island serves as an anchor-point to any kitchen. Not only does it draw your attention to the middle of a room, creating a sense of space and elegance, but it also creates a mini gathering point. A space where everyone can huddle and socialise around after a long day. Feeling far from guests? Add some wheels and roll on over.
Goodbye Musical Chairs
Another nifty benefit of the addition of a kitchen island is actually the additional seating around it. Not only does an island kitchen provide the gateway for charming conversation, but it can double-up as a seating solution as well.
No bar? No problem. Pull up some barstools for the wine and dine, and some cute floral arrangements for tea-time.
Too Many Chefs in the Kitchen?
Too many people in the kitchen cramping your culinary creativity? Hit the road, Jack. If seclusion is your fancy, an island in the kitchen is a great way to create and section-off an entirely separate workspace.
Another overlooked benefit of kitchen islands is their value-added storage space. Add draws to your island and not only will you have what you need at your fingertips, but you won’t bite off your own searching for places to put all your things.
These are just some of the many benefits of a kitchen island. You can also use them as room separators, to hold extra appliances and far more. So, what are you waiting for? Get the island rolling!
