Kitchen island cabinets can be designed in a variety of styles. You can have a flat island or one with multiple levels. Multiple level islands have an elevated counter space where bar stools can be easily placed to provide additional seating and eating space. This is also a great place for parents to help their children with their homework while also preparing for their family meal.

Islands are a great way for homeowners who enjoy entertaining to socialize and cook at the same time. Kitchen Islands can also be used to create a stunning beverage and appetizer bar for your guests. Using an island in this manner allows you to easily refill or replace trays of appetizers as needed while also participating in the conversation going on around you. No cook should be left out of the fun, right?

Making your kitchen island a cooking zone with countertop space on both sides of the stove allows you to slice and dice ingredients within inches of your stove top. To make it even more efficient, add a wastebasket cabinet and a dishwasher to your kitchen island. 

Does anyone in the family enjoy assisting with dinner preparation? Islands can be a great way to divide work triangles in the kitchen, allowing a second person to assist without getting in the way. A sink is a great way to add character to your island. This eliminates the possibility of getting burned by a hot stove while washing dishes or cleaning your hands.

Accessories for Kitchen Island Base Cabinets

An island is a great way to add storage to your kitchen. Spice racks, tray dividers, sliding shelves, dishwasher base cabinets, and a variety of other kitchen cabinet island accessories can be planned into your design based on your space and needs. Adding some light fixtures, such as pendant lights above your island, to add eye-catching design elements and increase kitchen lighting.
