Kitchen islands have become increasingly popular over the years. Islands provide additional storage and workspace as well as make your kitchen look stylish, modern, and classy. It is a very practical addition to any kitchen that has adequate space.
Kitchen islands have gone from a "nice to have" to a "must have" in kitchens throughout the country. Not only are they a sign of a nicely appointed kitchen, but they add valuable workspace to the kitchen - allowing families to easily gather together to create meals and spend time with one another.
Decorating the island with utensils or products goes along the same lines as the appliances. Don't just use any old kitchen products to place on the counter. Things like a spice rack, decorative containers and baskets are a great idea for the kitchen island. Some other items you may consider are napkin or paper towel holders and canisters of dried goods such as sugar and flour. Just be sure that you don't throw everything on the island and use it as a catch all. It should still be neatly organized.
