Many Capstone Custom Homes floor plans include a kitchen island. While this feature is becoming increasingly commonplace, some home buyers may still be on the fence about incorporating an island in their own layout. Here are a few key benefits of a kitchen island that you should consider.
Extra Storage and Electrical Outlets
Everyone wants more storage in their kitchen — and an island provides exactly that. The island is a good spot for custom cabinetry for oversized or uniquely shaped items that won’t fit in standard cabinets. Islands can also house multiple electric outlets, creating a go-to charging station the whole family can use.
Sink and Cooking Surfaces
An island gives you extra counter space that can be used for food prep. Of course, additional surface options can make the island even more instrumental for your cooking needs. Sinks and gas stovetops are just two features that are often implemented in a kitchen island. This can also help create additional counter space in other parts of the kitchen.
A kitchen island can provide a cozy, informal seating area. Stool seating makes it great for a casual meal, or as a place for your kids to work on homework while eating a snack after a day at school.
An island offers a versatile, multi-use space that will help you get even more out of your kitchen. Our island installations work seamlessly with your kitchen layout for great spacing and flow. To learn more about out custom kitchen options, contact our design team today.
