A kitchen island is a standalone piece of cabinetry, usually placed in the middle of a kitchen space, which provides an additional countertop to work with. Kitchen islands, of late have made themselves quite indispensable in modern kitchens, and apart from just providing an extended countertop and adding to the aesthetics of the kitchen, also perform many critical functions.
Let’s have a look at the various styles of kitchen island options available today.
This is one of the simplest forms of a kitchen island and is just a table with four legs and a working area on top. It is positioned in the kitchen where a kitchen island is. But to be honest, it’s more a table used for prepping food than a real kitchen island.
One of its biggest positives happens to be that it is easy to install (or bring in) and easy to remove if you aren’t happy with it.
A rolling-cart style kitchen island is a portable prep area that gives you an extended working space in the kitchen. Ideal for small kitchens, these carts aren’t very expensive and quite easy to move in and out
These compact kitchen islands are different from the rolling cart variety as they do not have wheels on them and are more or less fixed. They look a lot like ‘real’ kitchen islands. They are usually the height of your kitchen countertop and just right for prepping food. They are usually 4 feet long. Function-wise they look aesthetically pleasing on the eyes and are way better than rolling carts that have a way of sliding away when you’re in the middle of chopping your veggies
This is a kitchen island that is designed as a base cabinet with a countertop placed above it. This is a more permanent kitchen island than the ones that we’ve spoken about so far.
This fully functional and versatile kitchen island does everything that the main kitchen counter can do. It gives you not just ample additional countertop to work with, but also has a built-in sink, (with a drainage system) lights and many a times, even a fully functioning stove.
These kitchen islands can also be designed to have shelving space on their sides for aesthetic or functional reasons.
This is a kitchen island that serves two important functions at the same time. While it serves as a fully functional countertop with or without the sink or the stove, it also has a separate area, that serves as a breakfast nook, which is sometimes at a relatively lower level with bar stools lined up on the side, for times when people want to grab a quick bite right in the kitchen. Owing to its functionality this kitchen island tends to be one of the most popular choices amongst all the ones that we’ve spoken about here.
