The kitchen is the hub of the home, a kitchen island is a welcome addition to any kitchen space.

There are so many benefits to having a Kitchen Island, they come in all shapes and sizes with something to suit every household.

Family

The Kitchen Island is a perfect place for all the family to get together, to enjoy socialising, preparing food and eating together, and for studying and working on. Add some tall stools to your kitchen island, as extra seating space in your kitchen, this can really help to make kids feel part of the action whilst still being under parental supervision, whether for help in prepping dinner or with their homework, allowing the grown ups in the household time and space to still cook and do any chores needed to be done whilst multitasking.

Creating a Focal Point

By introducing colours or materials that are different from the cabinets or counter-tops already in your kitchen, you can make the island a focal point for your kitchen. You could use cool lighting solutions above the island to create ambience and atmosphere.

Storage

Use your Kitchen Island as a place to increase storage for all sorts of kitchen amenities and utensils with the option of additional drawers, shelves, and cabinets. The majority of kitchen islands can be designed to suit your lifestyle, so get as creative as you like with storage options!

Material Options

One of the best things about a Kitchen Island is customising everything to be exactly how you want it, including colour, texture and finish. There really are so many different material options for kitchen islands! You could have anything from Granite or Marble, to Ceramic or Quartz. Whether you like bright colours for a fun and vibrant vibe, or neutrals for a sleek and clean look, there will be a material option for you.

Shape and Size

No matter the space you have in your kitchen, you can most definitely design a kitchen island to fit your needs. Kitchen islands are available in all sorts of shapes and sizes, from small rectangles, to squares, to long ovals.
