A kitchen “island” is a metaphorical way of describing a freestanding cabinet surrounded by a “sea” of flooring. An island is basically an unattached counter in a kitchen that permits access from all sides. An island is a freestanding piece of cabinetry that is placed in a kitchen to supplement the countertop space. There are an incredible amount of diverse opportunities for personal expression in the creation and inclusion of an island to a kitchen. A kitchen island is a great addition, but most kitchens lack the room to sensibly fit one of a usable size in the center of the available workspace. It can ideally be used in large spaces where it does not allow for congestion and permit easy circulation.
