Make sure to include seating around the island for kids and friends to hang out.

A kitchen is more than just a place to cook your meals; it’s a place to hang out as a family. We used to only worry about having too many cooks in the kitchen, but now we have to worry about too many cooks and too much company in the kitchen. At TKS, we don’t want you to have to limit the number of people who can hang in your kitchen. We want to help you design a kitchen that is fit for a community, a place for cooking and for catching up. A place for eating and entertaining. A place for your wok and a place for work. Before we get too caught up in alliterations, let’s talk kitchen islands and creating a beautiful and practical kitchen.

The island is the perfect multi-functional kitchen furniture

No man is an island, but every kitchen should have one, and one that is big enough to take charge of your next school bake sale, all while your kids are hanging out doing homework and waiting to lick the cake batter off of the spoon.

A kitchen island is a statement piece for your kitchen, but it will also serve as a functional piece of furniture for the communal and multi-functional kitchen. The island can stand out stylistically from the rest of your cabinetry, either in color or texture. However, the size of your island depends on how you intend to use it, and how many people intend to use it at a time.

Customizing your island

Besides a beautiful countertop to adorn your island, you can customize your island to create functional storage all around to meet all of the requirements you have. There can be spaces for kitchenware and utensils, towels, and china, but you should also take into consideration that someone will need to plug in an iPad or a laptop while they are working and you are prepping the dinner.
