Kitchen islands are a great way to add both style and functionality. In kitchens of any scale, a wisely sized and well-organized kitchen island provides additional prep space, storage for serving pieces and equipment, and a comfortable place for kitchen visitors to park. The island doesn't have to be square or rectangular. You can custom design a kitchen island with angles and features that best fit your kitchen and your needs.
When planning your kitchen island, think about adding under counter storage for cookbooks, or even installing a cook top right on the island. Retrofit an existing island by reorganizing storage, adding a bar-size sink or resizing and resurfacing the top. If you don’t have an island, look into adding a clever cart-style cutting surface that can take its place wherever you need it and go mobile as a roving entertainment center. With these tips, creating a stylish kitchen is easy.
