Kitchen islands are popular and with good reason: not only can they act as a breakfast bar or informal workspace, they can provide an easy way to divide the preparation and eating spaces in an open plan room.

Islands make a statement, and their placement needs consideration. They must be close enough to key appliances without crowding you in. Islands are ideal for hobs – drawing the eye and making your cooking the focal point of your kitchen.

Take a look at our pictures of kitchen islands to get an idea of how they can add style and function to your kitchen!
