The Benefits of a Kitchen Island

Kitchen islands have been a trend in kitchen renovations for a long time and seem as though they are here to stay! And for a good reason; there are a plethora of amenities that come with the installation of a kitchen island. If you are thinking about installing an island into your kitchen, read along to reap the benefits! 


We believe that it is a universal experience to run out of storage space in your kitchen entirely. Whether you are a family of two or six, there is simply never enough space. With a kitchen island, you are able to customize it in a way that adds more storage space. You can add drawers, cabinets, and hooks to either side. If you do not want to add to the island, the underneath is perfect for throwing a few things under for storage! If you are low on countertop space, your island also acts as an extra countertop for you to work on.

If you are working with a small space and think an island may be too overwhelming, there are mobile islands! You can move them around your kitchen to make room wherever you need extra space while still adding more storage with the island. 


We believe the kitchen is the heart of the home, so the more, the merrier! It is important for families to be able to spend time together, especially while cooking and during meals. Kitchen islands add a ton of extra seating space into your kitchen. It is a great way to create more room to spend time with your family. This will also make additional seating in your house for when guests and family come over!

Extra Outlets and Appliances

Gas, electricity, and plumbing can be hooked up to kitchen islands, allowing plenty of space for more outlets and appliances. Did you run out of room for the new coffee maker you desperately want? The island is the perfect place for it to go. You could even move your sink or stovetop to your island.
