Ideas for Adding a New Island to Your Kitchen

An island can make your kitchen the most useful room in your home. You might think that you don’t have the room for an island, or perhaps, you are concerned that you won’t be able to match the island to the current kitchen design. With the help of a contractor, you can achieve the desired look. The addition of an island can make your existing kitchen even more functional.

Save Space

If you have a small kitchen, adding in a kitchen island instantly gives you a table for your home. Add to the island a few stools or chairs, and your new island is now the perfect setting for a meal. The addition of a stone or tile top finishes the look.

Add Storage

If storage is a concern, ask your contractor about island cabinets that have extra storage. Adding in sliding drawers, interior shelves, and even compartments for dishes, pots and pans, makes for loads of extra storage in your kitchen. Additionally, your kitchen island may be the perfect place to store seasonal items that are only used a few times throughout the year.

Gain More Prep Space

If more prep space in the kitchen is what you need, talk with your contactor about adding in a sink in the island or even a cook top. Prepping for daily meals or bigger holidays will be easier with the right set up for you. Combining form and function, your kitchen island can be the answer to many of your current kitchen solutions.
