Sitting in the middle of a kitchen, a kitchen island and breakfast bar is a great way to create extra eating, prepping, cooking, and entertaining room, as well as giving you the chance to make a real design statement. Accessibility from all sides provides useful additional storage space too.
One of the most important things to consider is how you would like your kitchen island to look and feel. Functionality and style go hand in hand as your individual requirements will inevitably influence the design. Once you have decided on the main use of your kitchen island, it’s time to chose the size. If you have a more compact space it might be best to consider a narrow breakfast bar. While if you are fortunate to have a large kitchen, you could consider a free-standing island with integrated breakfast bar and prep area.
