One of the greatest functional benefits of the island unit is that it will greatly expand your kitchen storage space. The kitchen island being a piece of furniture itself can include a wide range of cabinet, drawers, shelves and attachments. You can introduce wine chillers and warming drawers, end shelves or a separated shelving unit, generally there are no borders to your imagination when it comes to increase the efficiency of the island. Have creative fun!
At this stage, you should decide what your island countertop will be mainly used for –is it dining and a breakfast bar the main purpose of it or food prep will be everyday activity. If the first- stools and cantilevered countertop are basic. If you want to combine both functions deciding the shape of the island can be helpful. Think about it- will it be traditional rectangular island style, or a T or L-shaped island that will help you to create a multi-purpose area. For example, T-shaped islands can be useful for prepping food at one end while seating guests and family at the other.
