Benefits of Adding A Kitchen Island

Your home’s kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house. It is often referred to as the heart of the home by homeowners and contractors due to the fact that it functions as the hub of the home. Considering how important your kitchen is to the flow of your home, it is essential to ensure that your kitchen has all of amenities that you need. If you’re looking to remodel your home’s kitchen, one of the best additions you can make is adding a kitchen island! Interested in learning more about the benefits of building a kitchen island in your home? Take a look below for more information!


One of the greatest benefits of building a kitchen island, particularly for homeowners without a traditional dining room, is that the island can double as a seating area in a pinch. Pull up a couple of stools and add a small recess in one side of the island and you have a perfect breakfast nook for a quick sit-down meal!

Cabinet Space

A major limitation that many homeowners run into after a few years in a kitchen is a lack of cabinet space. As you accumulate more cooking accessories, your cabinets may begin to overflow with appliances. If you’ve found that you simply lack the cabinet space to keep all of your cooking possessions in the kitchen, an island is a fantastic opportunity to add a bit of extra storage! 

Easy To Reach Appliances

In addition to extra cabinet space, a kitchen island provides you with the opportunity to build some of your appliances straight into the kitchen. The microwave is often a popular choice for this. Many homeowners elect to build a microwave straight into their kitchen island, freeing up valuable space and cutting down on the clutter on your counter-tops. If you’re interested in improving the workflow of your kitchen, an island is a fantastic opportunity.

Extra Sink

Another potential benefit of building an island is the opportunity to build an additional sink in your kitchen. When there is more than one person cooking at a time, having one sink can often become a limitation. Rather than having to fight over whose using the sink during meal prep, building an island can provide two separate work stations, allowing everyone to prep at the same time!

Focal Point

Finally, many homeowners elect to install an island simply because it looks beautiful. A well-installed island becomes the focal point of any room. If you’re looking for a way to breathe new life into your kitchen, adding an island is a fantastic option!
