NJW, your Columbus, Ohio general contractors, are seeing a trend in kitchen islands… large and full of functional space! They say everyone gathers in the kitchen, we definitely find this to be true, do you?

When doing a kitchen remodeling project, we are often asked to include a large functional island that will serve as a command center for the family.

First, islands work. Because they can be accessed from all sides like the old kitchen table, they’re ideal for a variety of kitchen tasks.

Second, these freestanding pieces instantly become the focal point of a kitchen because they can have the look and feel of furniture.

Third, islands help kitchens adjust to some of the big changes in American life in the past few decades. Today’s kitchens are not only open to other rooms but they also have to accommodate multiple cooks, kids doing homework, and even party guests.

Lastly, when done correctly, an island can be designed to serve many functions including:

  • An area to dine, taking the place of dining tables
  • A work station
  • A place to entertain guest or hang out and visit with family
  • Your island could have a cooktop and a prep sink, as well as ample storage full of drawers and open shelves
  • It can serve as a buffet when entertaining guests
