Ways to make the most of your kitchen island

Besides being a stylish addition to your kitchen, an island is also a great functional asset.

Firstly, an island provides the potential for additional storage space in kitchens that might be lacking in units. Magnet’s Orgaline Pan Drawer Dividers are perfect for island cabinets, as a way to organise crockery and pans out of sight, but within reach.

The obvious option is to install cabinets inside the island, however consider taking advantage of each side of the island. An integrated spice rack as seen in Magnet’s Newbury White kitchen, provides neat and handy storage of essential ingredients.

Aside from storage, an island can act as a functional dining area, with a relaxed, informal feel such as the free standing unit in Magnet’s Leighton Gloss Cream. The option to add some sophisticated bar stools is a chance to bring even more personality to your kitchen.

Similarly, for a little extra casual dining and drinking space, Magnet’s Low Table Brackets attach perfectly onto the side of an island unit. Comparably, the Cocktail Bar Brackets extend beyond a worktop to create a two-tiered effect to give extra height and a relaxed cocktail bar feel.

The perfect combination of functionality and showcasing is found within Magnet’s Somerton Cream kitchen, where a functional wine cooler is fitted neatly into a central kitchen island. Showcasing your finest collections, perfect for the sommelier in the house.
