The Benefits of a Kitchen Island

The Benefits of a Kitchen Island

Kitchen islands have many benefits – they are practical, multi-purposeful, and can work in any style of bespoke kitchen.

Extra Seating

Perhaps one of the most appealing things about an island is that it allows an extra seating space to be incorporated into the kitchen. Perfect for casual dining, breakfasts, or even as a place to perch during the day, the kitchen islands provide a versatile and alternative option to the formality of a dining table.

Extra Worktop Space

A second benefit to the kitchen island is that there is no need to worry about running out of worktop space. Because this additional worksurface isn’t against a wall it provides a large open space to chop vegetables, roll out pastry, or even as a place to serve your food. No matter how small or large the island is, extra worktop space will always come to good use. 

Additional Storage 

The kitchen island also provides you with more storage. You can choose from a variety of options to incorporate into your island design such as, cupboards, shelving, integrated appliances, and baskets. Because of the extra depth islands give, they are the perfect space for deep drawers to hide away those larger pots and pans that often get in the way.  


Islands can really accentuate the design of a kitchen – it creates a focal point in the room that adds visual interest as well as charm and character. Islands can also be incorporated into any style of kitchen – whether it be modern, traditional, farmhouse, industrial etc. Plus, when choosing bespoke it means that there are endless ways to design a beautiful island to perfectly suit your personal style of kitchen.

Flow Around The Kitchen 

A final benefit to having a kitchen island is that it can bring the whole space together in a way that makes using the kitchen easier and more efficient. Having a distinct central area creates a natural flow for everyone moving around the room.
