Kitchen Island Ideas and Benefits

Do you often feel as though you don’t have enough counter space in your kitchen? Are you often wishing that there were seating available for friends and family to keep you company in the kitchen? These are just some of the reasons to install an island when you have a kitchen remodel. Here are some more ideas and benefits of kitchen islands.

Food Prep Sink

Having a food prep sink in your kitchen island can be very beneficial. You can use your primary sink for dishes and your island sink as a food prep station. With ample counter space surrounding the food prep sink, you’ll be able to prepare fresh fruits and vegetables with ultimate convenience.

Shelves and Storage

One of the best reasons to install a kitchen island is increased storage space. The island doesn’t just increase your counter space, it also increases your storage space. You can add shelves, drawers, and other elements to allow you to have more storage for your food prep items. You can also install a hanging pot rack over the island for easy access to all of your pots and pans.


You can add seating to your kitchen island with some well-placed bar stools. This will allow you to have company in the kitchen without them getting underfoot. It also gives you a comfortable and informal place to have breakfast, lunch, or sip coffee in the mornings.
