Once you have determined how you will be using your large kitchen island, you can begin to choose the design elements that are important to the function of your kitchen. If you are looking to add more room for dining, then be sure to choose a kitchen island that allows for stools and adequate leg room.

A large kitchen island can also accommodate an additional sink or cooktop. These features can be especially helpful to people who prepare the majority of their meals at home. If cooking is a priority for your large kitchen island, then you might also want to consider a wooden surface for chopping or stainless steel countertop for easy cleanup.
