No matter the house style, be it traditional or modern, nearly every house nowadays has a kitchen island. If it’s for extra worktop space & storage or if you use it as a spot for social interactions, the island has evolved down through the years and is dynamic in its functions.
The movable island as seen on Dermot Bannon’s Room to Improve. Custom made to order, this island is for the kitchens which unfortunately are tight on space for a traditional island. Made on four castors, this island is easily movable and perfect if you’re stuck for worktop space for serving or preparing food. The best thing about this island type is the fact it can be moved into a cupboard once finished using and it will free up your kitchen again.
The appliance storage island, perfect solution for all those appliances you want but might not have enough space for along with the storage needs you have for your kitchen design. From sinks and hobs to ovens and freezer drawers, the possibilities for your island is endless. They also are extremely practical with the close proximity of all the appliances you will use when prepping a meal.
Dining Islands; whether you have a separate dining room or not, a dining island is perfect for those quick morning breakfasts or even a cosy family dinner. Less formal than using your dining table but also very practical for the close proximity to the kitchen. We adore the booth islands as they allow for a dining area and the extra storage and work space.
