What is an Island

Islands are freestanding cabinets designed to add additional storage and countertop area to a kitchen. Islands can be permanent fixtures or designed to be mobile. Rolling kitchen islands are becoming more common, as the mobility allows for on-the-go flexibility in the kitchen. Many consumers opt to build their own kitchen island by buying additional base cabinets from their cabinet supplier. However, more and more cabinet designers are building custom kitchen islands which are pre-designed to accommodate additional sinks, appliances, etc.
