A kitchen island is the central item in every kitchen so it has to be as useful as it can. What would make a kitchen island useful? Depending on the needs of every cook, kitchen islands can be customized to best fit their requests.
A cooktop, a second sink, bake center or additional counter space are just some of the uses the top of a kitchen island can have. What about the inside of the counter? There is enough room to place a dishwasher, a refrigerator, an oven or perhaps an ice cube maker. The fact is that custom kitchen islands are meant to satisfy all the needs of the cook.
Enough for functionality, let’s talk a little bit about colors and materials. With wood being the most common material to build kitchen islands one could think the color palette is very limited. This is not the case. Wood finishing can have a lot of colors and fit perfectly with the rest of you kitchen furnishing.
We’ve gathered some of the most popular and useful kitchen islands in order to keep you inspired. Either you need extra space for preparing food or a personal bake center; you will most likely find something to catch your eye. Just browse through the gallery and get inspired!
