I´m not a kitchen designer but from working in the showroom also overhearing plan meetings. I know today that a lot of our customers possess their heart on a kitchen island. I think most of the kitchens we know today usually do have an island, mostly more contemporary projects. In fact you almost could not seem to find one that doesn't include an island.
This led to some googling, which gave me a good insight about the history of the kitchen island, which I feel would be a good time to share. So, they prominently came around in the 1980´s, design concepts were changing from stuffy little kitchens to more open. With connecting areas to create work in the home more efficient plus basically just easier. Being able to keep an eye everything in one large area made anything more over manageable. Rather than carrying food through to the dining room running back and forth, doubling the mess, it wasn't very convenient. That's made sense to change this by including everything in one large room. So kitchen islands were kind of invented as a solution to this problem, giving more storage, worktop area also substantially a dining space too. I guess this worked out pretty well as kitchen islands with their functions are adapting all the time.
I frequently think about what my perfect kitchen would seem like, as well as if I´d have an island (totally would) also how I‘d like it to be. Thinking about this made me realise if there are really so many different motives for them. I wanted to write down because it provides you some good things to think about while designing your area as well as what kind of island is usually practical for your necessity…
I suppose the main appeal with a kitchen island is the fact that it could also become an informal dining space. That is definitely why I would want one.
Finally, the kitchen island makes it simpler to serve plus host. Kitchen islands usually consists of at least 2 chairs, and you only require a worktop with an overhang, some impressive bar stools and voilà.
