Whether you have a small kitchen or a spacious one, a kitchen island is one of the most functional additions to any kitchen. There are many different kinds of kitchen islands, each with their own functionality. Some kitchen islands are used for preparing meals, while others are used for eating meals or a combination of two or more functions. The kitchen island you decide on would depend on your needs as well as the amount of time spent in the kitchen.
Kitchen Island with Storage
A kitchen island with storage is perfect for a home where there is not enough cabinets and drawers to store all your items. Islands with storage usually have different compartments that allow you to store small items, such as utensils, to larger items, such as pots and pans and kitchen appliances. Some islands even have wine racks on both sides or on the front and back panels of the island to store bottles of wine.
This white kitchen island provides plenty of storage. Sold through Crown Point Cabinetry.
Kitchen Island with Preparation Sink
Islands with a preparation sink are usually found in large kitchens because they also include a central cooktop area. The preparation sink allows you to peel fruits and vegetables as well as clean all types of food with the convenience of a cooking area within your reach. Usually, the island is large enough to prepare all of the ingredients needed for a meal as well as having enough space for kitchen appliances needed to prepare meals.
Kitchen Island with Seating
A kitchen island with seating is perfect for families who like to spend time in the kitchen while eating their meals. Depending on the height of the island, seating can be standard chairs or bar stools. This allows the family to gather in the kitchen and eat their meals, while the person preparing the meal can also join the family while they're cooking. Some islands with seating come with a preparation sink, a stove top or both, while others have a plain countertop.
Classy bar stools are gathered around this large kitchen island. Also available at Crown Point Cabinetry.
Movable Kitchen Island
A movable island is ideal for small kitchens because it\'s small and can, therefore, be repositioned or moved out of the way easily. Most movable islands have layers of shelves and a drawer to place different items, such as baskets of fruits and utensils and tools. Movable islands are affordable and made with different materials such as metal and wood. They are often used for small meal preparations such as chopping fruits and vegetables and other simple tasks.
Cooktop Kitchen Island
A cooktop island is often found in large homes where there is enough space for kitchen zoning. This means that each area in the kitchen is separated in different locations made specifically for a certain task. For example, the sink is on one side of the room, the stove is in another and the oven and refrigerator and freezer are in another area. The cooktop island is located in the center of the kitchen and is used solely for cooking and preparing and has storage for things that should be easily accessible to the cook such as cooking tools and appliances.
