When it comes to the topic of kitchens, most people have at least heard of kitchen islands. They’re a hot commodity if you've got the room to install one, as they can really increase your counterspace and storage, and even the flow of your kitchen – allowing for more flexibility on appliance placement, work zones and guest seating.
