Islands Make Kitchens More Functional and Efficient

Islands add more than mere attractiveness to a kitchen. They come in all shapes and sizes and give utilitarian function and much-needed storage space to any kitchen environment.

Extra Countertop Space

An island provides additional countertop space, which comes in handy when preparing meats and vegetables, making dough and confections.

Casual Eating Area

Many islands include countertop overhangs or a raised bar with leg room. This actually adds valuable space to your adjacent dining area. It’s great for casual dining - lunches, dinners or for children to enjoy an after-school snack.

More Storage Space

Additional storage space is one of the more popular reasons homeowners love islands. Island features include large drawers for pots and pans and under-cabinet shelving to store bread makers, mixers and other less frequently used appliances that can otherwise steal valuable counter space.

Islands Combines Style with Efficiency

Rochester Homes offers numerous island styles and configurations to fit all tastes and budgets. Islands can be either contemporary or traditional and designed with the same cabinetry used in the rest of the kitchen or as an accent to your other cabinetry with a complementary stain or painted finish. Amenities can include microwave shelving, convenient electrical outlets, plate and knickknack shelves and mullion glass doors.

An island is the first thing that visitors see when they enter a kitchen. It is where everyone congregates when entertaining. An island makes a statement, as well as adds function and space to your kitchen.
