As with any room in the house, there is opportunity for you to do all sorts of different things with your kitchen in terms of design. There really are no limits, and you can be as creative and extravagant as you’d like to be. When it comes to interior design, it is always good to experiment and try different things, as this can add new character to your home and really bring the room to life.

One thing we recommend doing to your kitchen, is having an island built in. This completely changes the whole dynamic of the room, whilst providing you with numerous benefits. So, we thought we would tell you a few reasons why you should consider getting a kitchen island…


  1. More storage!

It’s probably fair to say that in any room of the house, we would always appreciate more storage. However, this is particularly good for your kitchen. Not having enough storage space can often cause your kitchen to become cluttered and disorganised. By having an island built into your kitchen, this can provide you with a lot more storage space, making it very convenient. This means that rather than having to cram everything into the cupboards you already have, you can spread things out and create a bit more structure and organisation. 


  1. It creates the illusion of a bigger room

Although having an island built into your kitchen essentially takes up more space, it actually creates the illusion of a bigger room. It becomes a focal point of the kitchen and makes it appear more spacious. This is perfect if you’re looking for a way to completely transform the look and feel of your kitchen, or if you perhaps feel that it looks like it needs a bit of an upgrade.


  1. It modernises the design

Kitchen islands are very modern, and so if the rest of your home has a modern design, or if you are beginning the process of modernising your whole house, this is a great way to start. It looks very classy and is a very modern and practical feature to have. Although islands are very practical, they are a big design feature aswell, so if you are looking for a way to make the room look brand new, this will certainly do the trick. 


  1. An extra social/dining area

With your kitchen island comes a whole new seating area. This can be a breakfast bar, dining area, aswell as a place to have guests come and socialise. It is very convenient to have as a dining area, as it is in your kitchen that the food is prepared, so this makes it very handy and allows a space to sit and wait for the food to be cooked. You can surround your island with kitchen stools, so that friends and family can come round to enjoy time to socialise. Usually, kitchen islands will accommodate between four to six seats, depending on the size of your kitchen along with the overall design of the room.
