To help make this new area as practical as it can be, consider adding the same fixtures and appliances you find in the original workspace. An extra sink with running water, a stovetop, electrical sockets for blenders and whisks, and space for garbage and recycling bins can save a lot of walking to and fro.
Aside from increasing the amount of workspace and providing a new dining area, a kitchen island can be designed to incorporate extra storage space for those who need it.
You can add food preparation surfaces underneath the island. While food preparation is part of any kitchen, it is not the most thrilling sight for others to see. Fortunately, you can create levels of preparation areas underneath the islands surface. This allows you to do whatever slicing, mixing, and other activities you need to do without everyone seeing the mess.
One con that was noted was placement of an island can disrupt the flow of a kitchen. The work flow in a kitchen revolves around a triangle of refrigerator, sink, and range. An island can actually disrupt the flow of this working triangle, causing more issues in preparation, cooking, and cleanup. It is important to have placement so there is not a dead zone in the kitchen, or an area of countertop that goes unused due to the placement of the island.
Another con is space. While it was mentioned previously that there are rolling islands, if space is at a premium, an island may just not be practical. There is nothing more frustrating to a cook than having something in the way when you are trying to prepare meals for your family, or yourself. If your kitchen is small, while you may long for extra storage space and countertop, an island might not be the best solution.
Multi Purpose Style This type of island may be bigger in size since this will become an all in one table for you. This can offer you a lot of choices it will serve as your food preparation space, a place for your oven, storage and shelves for your utensils. You can also add a breakfast counter on your kitchen island as well.
