Kitchen islands are the hottest new kitchen trend. If you are looking to remodel your kitchen, you should consider incorporating one into your design. Preparing meals becomes so much easier because an island provides extra counter and storage space. If you are not interested in remodeling your kitchen but would like to purchase an island anyway, you need to make sure that you have enough space. Ideally, you will have an L-shaped kitchen that is at least 100 square feet. This configuration ensures that you have room for an island and its addition will not make your space too crowded. I do not recommend adding a permanent island to smaller U-shaped or "corridor" kitchens. There simply is not enough space, but a rolling kitchen cart is always an option.
Some interesting additions to kitchen islands that I have seen include wine refrigerators, wine racks, pet feeding stations, trash compactors, or a prep sink. Wine refrigerators are special refrigerators that are programmed to stay at a certain temperature that is perfect for wine storage. The refrigerator is often equipped with racks so that you can store as much wine as possible in the space provided. Prep sinks are small sinks that are equipped with a garbage disposal. They are not meant for cleaning dishes but rather for washing produce and disposing of the refuse from cutting or preparing food for cooking.
If you are really stuck on what to do with your kitchen island, then try a nice vase or basket of flowers. Fresh flowers are more appealing than fake ones, but they will need to be replaced every few days. You could also try a nice house plant on the island as well. This is a very simple and easy way to add some color and style to the otherwise bare countertop.
