You may want to increase your workspace in the kitchen. If you have enough space in the center of your kitchen, you may want to consider installing an island.
Secondary work zones create areas for the specialized activities that take place in today’s multi-functional kitchen.
Lower than standard counter heights create a baking center, perfect for kneading bread or rolling out cookies. Spend time with your little ones, baking their favorite treats.
Or a second sink in an island allows multiple cooks to help with food prep or cleanup. It is great if you have family gatherings and need an extra pair of hands in the kitchen.

Even wine can be stored in an island, easy accessible for enjoyment by a crowd. A small wine refrigerator can be installed into the island keeping your beverages chilled to perfection.
If you need extra storage an island is great for placing china, extra silverware, and other less-used kitchen appliances.
“If you are looking for additional storage and countertop space and island is great for both. Many kitchens will not have enough existing storage space and an island would solve that problem,” Steve Lenenberg of Canyon Kitchen and Bath said.
