A kitchen island is a freestanding, ultra-functional unit that can be used used for various purposes from prep to dining to mail stand. It can have a cabinet that can either match your existing kitchen design or compliment it.
It’s very dynamic and can be useful in more than one way. Definitely, you get more counter space, more storage, an eating area, and possibly room for an appliance or small work sink. In short, you can easily convert an L-shaped kitchen into a U-shaped one with the addition of an island!
It’s a myth that these units are suitable for sprawling kitchen spaces only. In fact they are very much a blessing for small cosy kitchens as they give you extra counter space to work upon, a multiutility dining area and a cosy spot for morning coffee. You can opt for a wooden option or a stainless steel on or maybe a marble top depending upon the interior style
