Along with the standard kitchen island options reminiscent of seating and counter house, with a little bit of planning you may add an excellent variety of cool island options to get extra out of your island. These islands are known as multi-functional kitchen islands. Listed below are some concepts.
1. Rubbish/recycling storage
That is what now we have and it’s superb. I strongly suggest it. We’ve got rubbish saved on the island which is most helpful as a result of we are able to wipe scraps straight from the island floor into the rubbish.
2. Pop-Up TV (or monitor)
Not one thing I need or want but it surely might come in useful for following recipes or watching one thing whereas within the kitchen. Nexus21 makes nice pop-up TV/monitor mounts (pictured above).
3. Machine holder
I just like the system holder bought individually as an alternative of being in-built so you may place it wherever on the island. Very useful for following recipes or Netflix.
4. Recipe ebook holder
As an alternative of going with a tool holder (or along with), get a recipe ebook holder. I notably like this one on Amazon with the “reducing board” look.
5. Charging station / Energy outlet
You may add energy retailers on the facet or the highest or go all discreet with a wi-fi charger that can be a pop-up outlet (so cool).

The above is extra than simply wine storage but it surely’s a “wine island”. Wine bottle storage constructed into the kitchen island is a fairly good thought IMO.
Right here’s a extra conventional island with built-in wine bottle storage:
7. Wine glass storage
An alternative choice is to go along with a extra “mini bar” oriented island reminiscent of the next:
8. Prep sink
A kitchen island with a full or prep sink is usually a nice use of island house.
9. Beverage fridge
We’ve got two beverage fridges. One is constructed right into a kitchen peninsula which is tremendous useful within the kitchen. It’s type of like an island.
Or construct it into your island as follows:
10. Hooked up eating space
11. Constructed-in spice rack

That’s one slick spice rack constructed right into a kitchen island. There are such a lot of variations you would do for a spice rack characteristic. Get artistic. Alternatively, you would place a spice rack in an island drawer as follows:

For avid herb gardeners, try this tremendous cool island with a built-in herb backyard:
14. Constructed-in paper towel holder
@melissaluikens So many enjoyable favorites in our kitchen transform, so listed here are a pair snippets. I like to host, so this island is what goals are product of for me. Like and comply with for an element II #farmhouseremodle#countryhouse#farmhousereno#mother#momlife#momoffour#momsoftiktok#kitchen#momblog#countryliving ♬ authentic sound – Melissa Luikens
The above is a very nice approach to declutter your counter floor and it hardly takes up any potential kitchen island cupboard space.
15. Constructed-in kitchen towel holder
Above is a kitchen island with built-in dishwasher with a towel-holder. You don’t have to construct in a dishwasher for a towel holder. Personally, I feel having a number of kitchen towel holders within the kitchen is an excellent use of house. I like operating a clear operation.
16. Multi-functional Trough
Should you like oysters or chillin’ drinks, add an ice trough to your island. Or use it to develop herbs. Test it out:
Why have one use for a sink when you may have a multifunctional trough? It may be used for something from chilling oysters, champagne or rising herbs, and naturally, as a conventional sink to arrange meals at too.

On the finish of the day, if it may be one thing constructed into cupboards or counters, it may be constructed right into a kitchen island.
