Why Do I Need a Kitchen Island?

Your kitchen needs a major update, so what better time than now to add an island? Kitchen islands have so much versatility, from storage to more cooking space, the possibilities are endless. Take a look at these points to see why you need a kitchen island:

  1. Storage. With all the latest gadgets coming out, you’re constantly buying new kitchen supplies. However, you seem to be running short on space. By installing an island with cabinets and storage built in, you’ll have just enough room for your new blender or mixer.
  2. Extra seating. Adding bar stools to the island is a great way to increase seating space. Whether you’re using the counter space as a bar or a buffet, with more seating you can entertain even more guests. This is also a great place for kids to sit so you can help them with homework while getting dinner ready.
  3. More cooking space. Instead of having the stove and oven on the counter, why not put it in the middle of your kitchen? This will free up side counter space for other kitchen accessories. Having your stove in the middle of your kitchen also makes your kitchen seem more open, and enables you to walk around the stove for more accessibility.
  4. Infinite material possibilities. With so many different materials available for kitchen islands, you can make your island custom to fit your lifestyle. If you’re planning on using it for chopping vegetables, consider a butcher’s block. If you’re looking for a top that cleans up easily, consider granite. You can also choose whether you’d rather have a stationary island or moveable island. If your island is on wheels, you can move it out from the center of the kitchen to create more room.

If you’re still not convinced that you need a kitchen island, or if you have any questions or concerns regarding installing an island, you can talk to a professional at Freedom Fence & Home by calling 443-271-6841.
