Modern Kitchen Island
According to the National Association of Home Builders, 76 percent of homeowners consider a kitchen island to be absolutely essential to their homes. Why are they so popular? Modern kitchen islands provide convenient storage options in the form of kitchen island cabinets and extra surface space to supplement your existing countertops.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that a modern kitchen island is a useful area of the kitchen. When we want a drink, it can serve as a bar, and for meals we don’t take in our dining rooms, it can serve as a nook. Kitchen islands aren’t just a functional addition to your home, but they also add style. With more and more appliance options, such as steamers, sandwich makers, espresso makers, wine refrigerators, and so on, equipped kitchens are becoming more common. Thus, the modern kitchen island became a very practical area for preparing meals and storing appliances.
You will be able to store much more in this shiny new modern kitchen island than you would have thought possible, no matter how small or large your current kitchen is.
With that, both the home owners and the designers want to achieve a pretty and cozy and functional island so as to allow themselves to hang out and eat there!
A kitchen island typically consists of a large surface built on a hardwood base. Most modern kitchen islands have handy shelves and cabinets built into this base to provide much needed extra storage for all the kitchen essentials that would otherwise clutter up your pantry or countertop.
Benefits of Kitchen Island Cabinets
On a kitchen island surface, you can take care of all different kinds of food prep, from chopping vegetables and cutting meat to rolling dough and kneading bread without clogging up your entire countertop. Plus, you can use your kitchen island surface for cooking with air fryers, grills, toaster ovens and many cabinet-sized cooking appliances that don’t have a permanent home on your counter.
Kitchen island cabinets offer invaluable space for everything from pots and pans and small appliances such as electric can openers, countertop grills, and pressure cookers. Items can be tucked away, but you’ll still have everything within reach. You won’t have to crowd your upper, high-traffic cabinets with bulky, unsightly appliances.
Kitchen islands can include a variety of storage options, from open shelving and drawers to closed cabinets for larger items. You can choose the style you prefer according to what kind of storage best fits your needs.
Once you’ve had a modern kitchen island installed in your home, you’ll agree with the other 76 percent of homeowners, and you’ll wonder how you ever got along without kitchen island cabinets.
