A dishwasher can also be built into an island, saving space in other areas of the kitchen for additional storage. Please bear in mind that you may need access to gas, plumbing or electricity to power these appliances.
Counter space in the kitchen is essential for easy meal prep and storage. Kitchen islands expand the available room to chop vegetables, prepare dishes and hold hot food. Therefore, one of the most important aspects of a kitchen island is the counter space.
