There’s no kitchen without a kitchen island, even if you think that such a piece isn’t for a small kitchen, you are wrong. Kitchen islands are super functional: these are cooking, washing, peeling and storage pieces; they can accommodate lots of appliances, tableware, dishes, pet food and bowls, books and magazines. Moreover, your kitchen island can do even more! Today we are discussing one more cool kitchen island function: kitchen islands that double as a dining table, or just have a dining or seating area.
Kitchen Islands That Wrap A Seating Area
If you have a big kitchen island, if it’s built up of several rectangles, you may place a seating or dining area right inside it, it will be a very cozy and comfy eating corner or breakfast corner. Of course, it works only if your kitchen is big enough and you have enough space for such a big kitchen island.
Kitchen Islands With A Longer Or Wider Countertop
If you want to save some space, you can just go for a longer or wider kitchen island and use the additional length or width or eating. It’s very smart and you won’t need to buy additional furniture – just a couple of stools. The eating zone may be the continuation of the kitchen island or may be made of some different material to highlight and separate it. The eating space can be raised to a different height for comfort.
