Stationary Kitchen Islands

If you are running out of room for storage or food preparation, then a stationary kitchen island might be the ideal solution for you.

A stationary kitchen island can provide extra workspace and seating room for your kitchen.

A stationary kitchen island truly lives up to its name in that its most useful feature is that it serves as a station for food preparation or seating that is not otherwise available in a kitchen. Think of a stationary island as an ideal place for doing "overflow" work, such as chopping vegetables or preparing plates for guests.

Stationary islands can also provide seating for casual dining, but keep in mind that the average design typically accommodates two people. This, however, can be the perfect option for someone who is simply seeking a weekend breakfast spot or a place for kids to complete homework after dinner. Be sure to choose seats that are appropriate for the height of the island and are made with a spill-resistant material.

Extra storage space is another feature that is often included with pre-designed stationary islands. A set of drawers, small side shelves and two to four cabinets are typical for these types of islands. Some stationary islands also include unique features, like a drop leaf breakfast bar or knife block that attaches to the end of the island.

Consider a stationary kitchen island if you are seeking a moderately sized design that can be moved to accommodate a new kitchen design or appliance. Stationary kitchen islands are the ideal option for a homeowner who is seeking a bit of extra space without a permanent commitment.
