One of the biggest trends in kitchen design right now is the rise of the island. Providing extra prep or social space, islands are also a great place to add some extra design flair and functionality.
Often, an island is the first thing you see when you walk in the kitchen, so it’s a great statement piece that deserves a little extra thought and consideration when you’re remodeling your kitchen.

People are spending more time in kitchens than ever, between having smaller homes with fewer social spaces, and the rise of Foodie culture, kitchens are the stars of the housing market. Not to mention that kitchen updates yield a 60-85% return on investment. But, more importantly, a great kitchen helps a house sell that much faster.
