Custom kitchen islands can help you personalize your space.

Custom kitchen islands are the best way to maximize kitchen efficiency and storage capacity. Designing a kitchen island around the specific needs of your family will allow the island to function as the hardworking heart of the home.

Customizing the kitchen island design also allows you to determine which specific tasks the island needs to perform to keep the rest of the kitchen high-functioning and efficient.

Hire a professional to help wade through the many design options as you create your one-of-a-kind kitchen island, from countertop materials (stone, stainless steel, butcher block and concrete are popular options) to other built-in options like a sink, cooktop, under-counter refrigeration, warming drawers or a dishwasher. Determine which space-saving qualities your kitchen island should feature. Could table-style island seating, for instance, eliminate the need for a kitchen table altogether? Similarly, under-counter refrigeration might eliminate the need for an oversized refrigerator.

Regardless of the materials you employ, or the solutions the custom kitchen island is designed to provide, make sure the style is in keeping with the overall feel of the kitchen—and that ultimately it functions as well for prep work and storage as it does for entertaining or working.
