Kitchen island in ScottsdaleIslands are a popular feature in modern kitchens for a good reason. They offer homeowners many benefits, such as extra storage and a versatile space for cooking, dining, and daily tasks. They can also add style to a kitchen with different textures, finishes, materials, and colors.

However, it's important to think about whether an island is right for your kitchen. In larger kitchens, islands can improve flow and functionality. We recommend them for spacious kitchens where they can be easily accommodated. But for smaller kitchens, a peninsula or a smaller island without seating might be a better fit.

Sometimes, homeowners really want an island even when it's not practical. In a small kitchen, an island can make the space feel cramped and hard to navigate. A poorly sized or mismatched island can also ruin the look of a kitchen.

Kitchens without islands can still be functional and stylish. Homeowners can use space-saving design elements like more cabinets with pull-out shelves, deeper drawers, and customized storage solutions. Banquettes (a built-in bench or seating area) can also provide seating without taking up as much space as an island.

If you dream of an open floor plan, an island might not be the best choice, as it can make the space feel smaller. And if you have multiple cooks in the kitchen, an island can get in the way of efficient meal preparation.
