Some kitchen islands are designed to also serve as bars and all double as storage units. If you have a spacious kitchen, opt for a U-shaped island. If space is a concern, then take a look at some of these smaller islands designed to let the kitchen feel airy and spacious while still keeping their functionality intact.
One of the biggest complaints about kitchen design is the lack of counter space. Considering all the kitchen activities that require a countertop, as well as appliances that are permanently located there, you want to fit as much open horizontal surface area in a kitchen as possible. This can be achieved by adding an island or breakfast bar to an L-shaped kitchen.
Because built-ins are expensive and the overall size of the area may be limited, one big design mistake is not including enough storage. Almost every kitchen has wasted space, but this can be minimized with adequate planning and forethought.
The kitchen island started out as a purely functional element but, with time, it has also developed a more artistic side, all sorts of unusual and intriguing designs being developed. The following kitchen islands offer more than just some extra counter space. They are extraordinary design elements that raise the bar to a whole new level.
