Who ever said the kitchen is just for cooking? Not only is it important for wining and dining your guests, it acts as a space where everyone can gather to hear about your day as a family, which is why having extra counter space is so important. It doesn’t have to be the sole purpose of having an island in your kitchen, but provides more room for socializing and storage. Beautifully designed and multi-functional islands can completely upgrade the design of the kitchen, adding an extra touch to the room and more value to a home when purchasing.
