While kitchen islands are a feature you will find in many kitchens, the idea of utilizing them as a central gathering point is what homeowners are remodeling for. We have known for a while now that dining rooms were on the out. But, now I am seeing a lot of people forgoing traditional seating and incorporating most or all of their seating at an island or a peninsula. People entertain, and families are more on the go, so they want flexible seating near the kitchen. If you have a kitchen island, getting on board with this trend will be easy for you. Create some seating arrangements and a centerpiece to make it a gathering point for all.
Not having enough counter space is a huge gripe for anyone who cut corners or did not think they needed it. It is an important aspect of the overall kitchen design. Having enough space to cook, entertain and place groceries are just a few instances where counter space will be important. More counter space is not a feature that is easy to change or add on, so it is worth giving it careful thought before you start the installation process.
