A Kitchen Island: the Design Choice of 2021


In kitchens, as with any type of home improvement, we see certain trends come and go. One that looks set to remain well into 2021 is the kitchen island. It’s clear to see why – it’s functional, practical and oh so stylish. The island is a welcome option to many people who have a large enough kitchen and want to make the most of it.

A kitchen island will usually match the other units in the kitchen, or it may use distinct cabinets to make a design statement. If this is your choice, make sure you’re confident in what you want and ask a kitchen designer to help. Islands will usually have seating so they’re a sociable choice, and they offer additional storage, plus many having plumbing too (so sinks and dishwashers might be installed here). For anybody with space, islands make kitchens more versatile and more enjoyable place to spend time.
