The problem is that a kitchen island needs more and more space, so you can attach them only in large kitchens or rooms, where kitchen and dining room are together in one room. So that the cook is not disturbed when preparing food, you must calculate the appropriate area in the kitchen in advance: from the kitchen island to the kitchen cabinets you have at least a meter away and the kitchen itself must be about 3.5 meters long. The best would be if your kitchen island is a meter wide, otherwise the presence of the kitchen island would be pointless.

It is wrong to consider the kitchen island as a simple rectangular piece of furniture, such as a chest of drawers, which should necessarily be in the middle of the kitchen. The shapes, materials and sizes are of course quite different depending on the taste of the homeowner and also depend on how large the kitchen space is. The kitchen island may look square, round, in the shape of a horseshoe or the letter S, may be pointed at one end or have a wide worktop - the range is really rich.

However, the structure of the kitchen block should always meet the needs of the cook. In some cases it is built entirely of drawers of various sizes, sometimes half of the kitchen island or even the whole can serve as a work surface for food preparation. Usually, the kitchen island is equipped with many cupboards or shelves where you can exhibit your favorite items or keep handy things handy.
