A very popular kitchen upgrade.

Kitchen islands are a very popular feature of contemporary kitchens. They are functional and efficient and part of modern interior decorating design.

Now back to kitchen islands. . .


Easily accessible counter space from every direction.

According to a National Association of Home Builders survey that was taken recently, 80% of home buyers consider a kitchen island either desirable or essential.

So, if you're remodeling and you have room for an island, be sure to include one!

Contemporary kitchens typically include an island that sits in the middle of the floor space. It anchors the room and provides accessible counter space from every direction.



To keep the costs of your kitchen island remodeling project low, you can minimize the features, and go with stock cabinetry and stock laminate counters.

You can also buy a less expensive, free-standing unit with all the bell and whistles!

The variety of stock free-standing kitchen islands available today is impressive, and the ones with unique, contemporary designs fit in nicely with the modern interior decorating design style.

You can also add decorative touches to your kitchen island in keeping with your décor theme, such as decorative kitchen towels, vases, candles, a cool decorative centerpiece, plants, etc (if you have the room)!
