Double Island Kitchen Design Ideas

Transitional gray and white kitchenIncorporating double islands in a kitchen is a great way to achieve multiple goals. In homes with an active family the kitchen acts as their base of operations, and having two islands makes the kitchen ultra flexible for meals, catching up over cookies or extra work and study areas.

When space allows, double islands are a good way to maximize traffic flow without sacrificing storage. This will create room for people to gather around one island while food is being prepared on the other, or one can offer hors d’oeuvres while the other offers seating – it just opens the door for added functionality and regular usage of the entire space.

The key to making double islands work in a kitchen remodel is having adequate space. It’s really not something that’s easy to pull off in a small space without your kitchen looking cramped. Islands are an attractive focal point, but it’s important to make sure their scale is not too overwhelming in relation to the rest of the kitchen.

If you’re thinking of remodeling your kitchen, set up a time to talk to one of our Designers about bringing your own vision to life. You can find inspiration in the Normandy Remodeling photo galleries. We also invite you to stay social with us on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest, where we share more projects and ideas.
