Sometimes, a kitchen can be complete and highly functional with just regular countertops and cabinetry. In other cases, kitchens can feel empty, lackluster, or disorganized without kitchen islands.

If you’ve been thinking about renovating your kitchen or simply adding an island, there are a few key things you should keep in mind to select the best design for your space and needs. Here are our top three tips when you’re looking at kitchen islands:

  1. Stunning countertops: Kitchen islands are primarily for additional counterspace, but they can also be a great focal point for the overall design of your kitchen. It’s crucial to choose a countertop material that’s both highly durable and beautiful to look at. A couple materials that offer stunning designs with excellent durability include granite, quartz, and marble.
  2. Additional storage space: In addition to boosting your counterspace in your kitchen, kitchen islands can also give you some extra storage room. Adding cabinetry to your island is always a great touch, and it’ll provide more space to help you stay organized.
  3. Additional seating: If you have a smaller kitchen or you like hosting gatherings in your home, it’s always nice to have extra seating for your guests. If you add a slight overhang to your island, you can add a couple cozy barstools to make your kitchen even more inviting.

These are just a few of the many options you have for kitchen islands, and we’d be happy to go over your options and help you find inspiration. Contact us today if you would like to learn more.
