Kitchen island design options offer so many features, whether it be more cabinets for storage, a sink to aid in food preparation, a wine rack or bookshelf, a stove or dishwasher, and the list goes on. Once you have decided on your island`s primary function, then you can set about choosing the particular design and features to be included that will optimize your time. Whatever the chief function of your island is to be, the necessary items to make it happen should be stored within easy reach. For example, if it is to be mainly used for cooking, then cabinets for pots and pans with drawers for utensils and spices are priority. If food preparation is the ideal chief function of the island design, then space for knives, cutting boards and small appliances such as food processors is what you are after. If the kitchen island in your home is to be a center point for gathering, then seating space and counter space for homework plus food preparation are your top needs. Islands are a very attractive, functional part of kitchen design. Ideally, it can become a warm gathering place for family and friends as well as provide extra working space. After all, the kitchen is the heart of the home!
Consider legs or feet on the island but execute it well. Legs should be sturdily connected with an apron much like a typical table. Feet can be individual feet or a furniture style arched cutout. Hint: If budget constraints do not allow for a complete remodel of your existing space, think about simply replacing the island and island tops and paint the perimeter cabinetry. This can get you much further on a smaller budget and you can have a well designed island. Replace the other cabinetry when you have additional funds.

Most people have an interest in the smaller, portable type. They love the versatility of kitchen furniture that has the storage capacity and counter space of a kitchen island, with the portability of a kitchen cart. Kitchen islands provide much needed storage space for utensils in pull out drawers, and other small tools in open drawers. They also have cabinets under the counter for storing things like pots and pans. Towel racks are a common feature, and some even include a spice rack.
