What is there not to love about a kitchen island? They combine the surface area of a dining room table with the functionality you need in the kitchen. In many ways, they can become the heart of the space.
The kitchen island just may be the most popular spot in the house during parties. Everyone always ends up gathering in the kitchen during a party and an island becomes the center of it all. If you have kids, they probably love to have breakfast and lunch there or to do their homework while you cook. An island turns the kitchen into a community affair.
Oversized kitchen islands give you even more to love.
They not only give you tons more surface space for cooking and entertaining, but they also provide you with ample storage opportunities. They take something great (the island) and make it even better.
