What are the advantages of central kitchen islands?
Positioning your kitchen island in the centre of your kitchen, depending on the layout, can be a great option. The advantages of this include:
- Creating a central hub- for some large kitchens, the units can be quite far apart on each side of the room. Adding a kitchen island to the centre of the space creates a central hub, that can provide a focal point, as well as a practical space. This will also help to connect both sides of the space, and act as a bridge or link between the two.
- Easy to reach fixtures- the sink, the oven and the fridge are the three main fixtures in any kitchen. These are used most often when cooking or preparing food, and so easy access to these is essential. With a central kitchen island, you should be able to reach these points easily, without anything impeding your space, or acting as a barrier. This creates a practical and functional kitchen space.
- Add a sink- a kitchen island can be designed with a built in sink. This can be either a second kitchen sink, or the only sink in your kitchen. Either way, a sink in the centre of the space can be much more practical than a sink in the corner of your room. You could also opt for an interesting design, or use of material, to create a striking kitchen feature.
