Space can become a constraint in a kitchen, especially if it is a small one. You just do not seem to find enough space to store your cooking essentials like utensils and ingredients, and you also need space for cooking. This is when a kitchen island proves to be a helpful piece of furniture to a homemaker.
They are called kitchen islands because they are freestanding pieces of cabinetry accessible from all sides. They are used to supplement countertop space and to increase the cooking area’s preparation space. There are no fixed or limited dimensions as you have to choose one based on the available work space.
They are ideal for not only providing some extra storage space through its drawers, shelves and some extra working space; it also helps improve the cooking area’s aesthetics and design.
