Kitchen islands serve a number of purposes. In addition to being a visual anchor in the space, they also help increase the room's functionality and efficiency.
Simon Benjamin Furniture, a rapidly growing company based in Sussex, England, creates bespoke English kitchens in two versions: classic or modern. The family-owned business designs and hand-makes each of its kitchens to order in its Sussex mill. “Our creative team pride ourselves on our traditional techniques, attention to detail and responsibly sourced materials,” the company says.
You may have already heard about the age-old kitchen design rule known as the “Golden Triangle.” The simple concept here is that the three appliances you use the most (typically the refrigerator, stove, and sink) should be aligned to form the three points of a triangle if you saw the kitchen from a birdseye view.
Whether your space lacks a proper dining table or you're looking to create a more casual bar-seating option, adding low-profile seating to the island is an easy way to increase functionality and make the environment more social for both guests and the cook. Create a breakfast bar or dining table, and leave a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath when not in use.
