What are the pros and cons of replacing a kitchen table with an island?
Islands are very popular these days and are replacing kitchen tables in quite a few remodels. Large islands with seating are versatile and, when designed with your needs in mind, can really enhance the way your kitchen is used. An added bonus is the extra storage space an island can give compared to a table. However, you need to make sure you have room for the island and that it won’t hinder the flow of your kitchen. Are the countertops in the kitchen granite? Then a coordinating granite piece on the island would be the best choice. The right design can be very positive for resale.
