When you remodel your kitchen, no feature is more versatile than the island! If your kitchen has space to include an island, you can amplify functionality and style by carefully considering included features. When you think of the benefit of having a kitchen island, counter space probably comes to mind. And yes! That is an awesome perk. But islands offer so much more!
“Islands are it—if a kitchen has room, it’s the way to go,” said Kay Himmelman, Seigle’s Designer and Outside Sales Representative. She has been recommending this feature for 28 years. “An island can eliminate traffic congestion, as it creates two paths to get where you are going. It adds storage and countertop in a central location, and it adds more interest as a focal point.”
As for special features to make an island even more enticing, the options for an island are limitless. “You can add different levels to accommodate counter and eating heights, you can add decorative backs, doors, sides, and beaded panels. And for function, you can create the perfect island for your needs: add open bookshelves, a veggie sink, lots of drawers, or even a freezer or microwave drawer,” said Kay.
