What are the advantages of kitchen island seating?

There are a number of advantages to using your kitchen island as a seating space. These advantages include:

  • Adding a versatile seating space- depending on the type of kitchen island you choose, and the size of your kitchen, you can use your kitchen island for formal seating, or for occasional seating. A kitchen island can be extended on side to create a formal dining table, or it can simply be used as a casual breakfast bar. Either way, you can have the style of seating that suits your requirements, hassle free.
  • Combine seating with storage- a kitchen island doesn’t only need to be used for seating though, as this can also be used effectively for additional storage too. Pots and pans and large or heavy cumbersome items can easily be stored inside a kitchen island, leaving the rest of your cabinets for useful food storage. But you don’t need to choose, one or the other as with a specifically design kitchen island, you can have both at once.
  • Built in seating- kitchen island seating is designed to be a big part of your kitchen, visually and practically. This means that the seating space is designed to match your kitchen style exactly, and wont look out of place. This is not always the case for seating added after the fact.
