Space is key for an island used while entertaining. The countertop must provide ample surface for serving or dining. There should also be plenty of room for guests to mingle or be seated outside the work zones. "The ability to have your family or guests seated at the island while you work on the opposite side is very comforting and social," says Debbie Nassetta, of Roomscapes, Inc., in Laguna Niguel, California.
If you have a lot of room for a wide island, you can have multiple kitchen stations installed in it – for example, a stove and a sink. Most people want to incorporate seating on the island too, although that’s not always a great fit with a cooktop if you have a more formal space.
A kitchen island can have several valuable purposes in your kitchen. The first is that it provides ample storage space in the base of the unit; a valuable addition to a kitchen where you don’t have lots of wall cabinets.
