But our three designers say you can also think of your island like a piece of furniture that is coordinated with the rest of the room but a little different. If you want the island to be the kitchen’s focal point, Kirschner says, get creative.
The raised part of the counter is suitable for serving and eating. On the other hand, the lower tier is perfect for storing dishes, cups and placemats. Additionally, hot meals can be safely secured in the lower area of the countertop, preventing accidents and spills.
From preparing meals to stopping into the kitchen for a quick cup of coffee, islands provide an additional area for cooking and organization. This space can also be utilized for warming food, cleaning dishes or a place to enjoy a small bite.
If you aren’t looking to spend too much, you could add a microwave into the side of the island (within a cutout) or a retractable surface used as a simple baking station. Another clever idea is to install a small refrigerator or drinks cooler into the side of the kitchen island, expanding available space to keep ingredients cold.
