Make an Island Part of Your Outdoor Kitchen Design

iStock-175548140.jpgAn outdoor kitchen can be a bold addition to your home, but it can also lack the storage or counter space your indoor kitchen has. As you determine the best ways to achieve more functionality from your outdoor kitchen design, you may find that there is one simple solution: adding a kitchen island. Here are four great reasons a kitchen island can be a great addition to any outdoor kitchen design:

  1. Kitchen islands provide extra counter space. Whether you use that space for storage or food preparation is up to you, but depending on the size of your outdoor kitchen, you could potentially double your existing counter space.
  2. Your outdoor kitchen design may also include a kitchen island that incorporates extra cabinets and drawers. This means more storage for your outdoor kitchen supplies.
  3. A kitchen island can also give you extra seating. Purchase a couple of bar stools and you have a few extra seats for the next time you have company for dinner.
  4. Last, but not least, kitchen islands don’t have to be stationary. This is where convenience really comes into play. You can have all the benefits of a kitchen island without committing to a certain space. You can use it for food preparation one night and push it into the corner and out of the way the next. 

Kitchen islands truly are a budget-friendly outdoor kitchen design option; they provide you with the space you need without compromising on your other outdoor kitchen essentials.
