Multifunctional kitchen islands

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

Tablet Stand and Holders with Adjustable Range and Height-Viozon Aluminum Stand Compatible with iPad/iPad pro/ipad Mini/Cellphone/Kindle Desk Holder fits 3.5-13inches, 360° Swivel Adjustable Base

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:

An alternative choice is to go along with a extra “mini bar” oriented island reminiscent of the next:

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.

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:
