The Top Reasons to Put an Island in Your Kitchen

Thinking of doing some kitchen remodeling? Maybe you're happy with your countertops and cabinets, but you know something is missing. You want to renovate the kitchen to some extent and enhance the space, but you're just not sure how.

To that, we ask: Have you considered building a kitchen island?

Plenty of other homeowners across the country have certainly thought about it. According to a recent study, an incredible 57% of renovating homeowners either add or upgrade their existing kitchen islands. And for good reason - islands have a lot of utility in a kitchen, provided your home has the space. For a lot of people, a kitchen has become a must-have aspect of the home.

Here are three reasons to consider putting an island in your kitchen:

More Counter and Storage Space

This one's a no-brainer: Adding an island to your kitchen simply gives you more counter space to utilize when cooking or hosting. This works especially well in smaller kitchens with limited counter space, but still have the room capacity to fit in a smaller island.

Along the same lines, a kitchen island provides ample storage space for pots, pans, dishes, and all of the necessary cooking equipment we now require. Think of it as a freestanding cabinet. Don't want that toaster taking up counter space? Need somewhere to house your new air fryer? Let that new kitchen island go to work for you.

You Gain an Additional Eating Area

Thinking of a good central area where people can grab food while hosting? Just want somewhere different you can eat? The island is calling your name. Plus, bar seating adds a great touch to your kitchen vibe.

It Reinvigorates Your Space

If you're remodeling your home, an island provides a pretty drastic change to the look of your kitchen. It can give you a completely different perspective on the utility of your kitchen and home, along with making it feel fresh and brand-new.
