Kitchens are important to our everyday life
Whether or not the kitchen is the heart of your home, there’s no getting away from its importance in our domestic life. It’s not just the place where we prepare food, it’s also where we gather, spend time, do our homework, catch up with friends and neighbours. It’s a place where problems get solved, and we take time out for ourselves.
Increasingly, people are demanding more of their kitchens. Kitchen design has been evolving over the years and kitchen islands are now a commonplace feature of the modern kitchen.
What is a kitchen island?
Kitchen islands are separate units, usually placed somewhere in the middle of your kitchen. They will usually contain a work surface and different storage options. There are as many different types of kitchen islands as there are kitchen designs. Kitchen islands were once associated with large, high-end kitchens, but today they appear in all kinds of kitchens, whatever the size and budget.
A place to prepare food
Kitchen islands offer an extra place to work and prepare food. Because they’re removed from the rest of the units, they often feel less cluttered and more spacious, allowing for easier food preparation. Kitchen islands can help make cooking a pleasure.
A place to eat
Kitchen islands are also popular as a place to eat. They can offer a more informal dining experience, perhaps as somewhere to eat your lunch, or share coffee with a friend. Kitchen islands make your kitchen more liveable and therefore enjoyable.
As well as enhancing the looks and utility of your kitchen, kitchen islands also provide much needed extra storage. Whether you’re just looking for open shelves, or extra cupboard space, kitchen islands offer valuable extra room.
