Additional kitchen island ideas are to consider using shelf space on the sides of your kitchen island for cookbooks, collectibles or storage. A built-in TV works here, especially if it faces the family room. Or a microwave may work well for heating up after-school snacks and cooking foods quickly.
Add a Sink or Two: Adding kitchen appliances such as a sink to your new kitchen island will give it even more functionality and also serve as a gathering point when entertaining. A sink boosts the usability of any kitchen island by giving you another place to rinse off food and wash dishes. A sink can also be great when entertaining, so your guests can take part in the preparation of the meal without cluttering up your existing counter space around the oven and refrigerator.
Depending on the size of the island, it may be easy to turn it into a sitting area for the family. Add a few stools around the island and clean off the top of it so that the family can sit around and enjoy meals at the table. This is a great alternative if you don't have a kitchen table in the room or if you only have a formal dining table in the house. It offers a convenient space that can be utilized in the best way possible. You can even choose to set the island with placemats if you want to add even more style to the room.
