The Benefits of Kitchen Islands

If you are planning a kitchen redesign then there’s no denying one thing you should consider installing is a kitchen island. Kitchen Ireland’s have always been the pinnacle of that luxury kitchen and over the years a number of different styles of kitchen islands have been designed to suit almost every kitchen style. Here at Hawk K&B, we really do enjoy installing a kitchen island, particularly as they offer great space for socialisation and storage. When you work with us you’ll benefit from beautifully tailored kitchen spaces that work specifically for you, right down to the size and shape of your kitchen island. 

But fashion is fickle and in recent times many people have been questioning the usefulness of the kitchen island and whether or not the Investment is worth it. We understand that with all the money you are pushing into your kitchen redesign, it’s unlikely that you’ll want to make the wrong investment. This is why we want to help you make the most informed decision possible by explaining to you all the benefits that kitchen islands can offer you. 

  • Offers you Additional Storage

One of the main appeals of a kitchen island is the fact that they offer you more storage space. A kitchen can never have too much storage space, particularly if you love to cook. An island can offer you all of that extra storage without having to worry about making your space look cluttered. You won’t need to have extra hooks on the walls or storage hacks, which will ultimately clutter up your space; you already have a space for everything. You can also customise your space within the island, including all sorts of different options like wine racks or coffee mug holders. They’re also a great place to put wine fridges and dishwashers to help keep your kitchen organised and decluttered, and who doesn’t love a wine fridge?

  • Give you Extra Seating

Anyone who enjoys cooking knows that there is no better social space than in the kitchen, but the kitchen is not usually set up for socialisation, it’s set up for cooking. As a result, you’ll often have people standing around awkwardly in the kitchen, getting in the way of the cook and generally feeling quite fatigued because they’re standing up. Fortunately, you’ll find that a kitchen island is the ideal solution to this conundrum. A kitchen island is a great place to put some bar stools, creating a seating and eating area that can be enjoyed by both family and friends. It’s a great choice for those looking to socialise and eat together and large kitchen islands can seat as many as six people. They are perfect for casual meals and fun evenings in the kitchen. 

  • Provides a Separate Workstation

Space is crucial when you’re cooking, particularly if you’re cooking a big meal, perhaps over the festive season. This is why you’ll want to install a kitchen island, it’s a great way for you to make the most of the kitchen space. Kitchen islands tend to be installed in areas of your kitchen that would otherwise be dead space, so you’re giving yourself a lot more workspace to play with. Not only does this make it so much easier to work with, but you can also create several different areas to streamline your cooking. You can do this with the extra space an island can offer you. If you’d like to include a sink to give yourself more space elsewhere, you can do that as well. The options with a kitchen island are limitless.
