Everything You Need To Know About Double Island Kitchens

March 31, 2022

Kitchen islands are extremely popular in most modern households in this day and age. There are many reasons for this, but one of the biggest benefits is that they provide more counter space. This can be especially helpful if you like to cook or bake a lot. But what if you want even more counter space? You can get a double island kitchen! The expert home builders at McArthur Homes have some information about what a double island kitchen is and some of the benefits of having one. We will also show you how you can have one in your new home at Rockwell Ranch!

Can You Have Two Islands in Your Kitchen?

Why not have two islands in your kitchen? You can absolutely do it! All that’s needed is enough space and a design preference. Having a double island kitchen doesn’t mean you have to have a huge kitchen – but if your home boasts room enough for two islands, it can make life a lot easier.

Thankfully, the kitchens at our homes in Rockwell Ranch allow for more than one island if you want them to – just check out our available home designs.

What is a Double Island Kitchen?

A double island kitchen is just what it sounds like – two islands in one kitchen. This can be a great option if you have a lot of space in your kitchen and want to maximize your counter space. Having two islands gives you more than enough room for cooking, baking, and prepping food. It also provides more storage space, which can be helpful if you have a lot of dishes or cookware.

What Are The Benefits of a Double Island Kitchen?

There are many benefits to having a double island kitchen. Some of the biggest benefits include:

An Extra Island Adds More Counter Space

The modern double island kitchen is a great space for an extra countertop! This can be helpful for cooking or baking. You’ll have plenty of room to work, and you won’t have to worry about overcrowding your counters.

An Extra Island Adds More Storage Space

In addition to adding more counter space, an extra island can also add more storage space. This can be helpful if you have a lot of dishes or cookware. You can store all of your supplies on one island, which will keep your kitchen organized and tidy.

An Extra Island is Great for Prepping Meals

If you like to prep meals ahead of time, you’ll love having an extra island in your kitchen! This is a great place to chop vegetables or prepare meat. You’ll have plenty of room to work and the layout of the island will make it easy to move around.

Multiple People Can Work in The Kitchen at The Same Time

If you like to cook with your family or friends, a double island kitchen is perfect for you! Multiple people can work in the kitchen at the same time without feeling cramped. You’ll have plenty of counter space and storage space to work with.

Having An Extra Island is Great for Entertaining

An extra island is a great addition to your kitchen, especially if you like to entertain guests. It provides more space for food and drinks, and it can be a great place for your guests to gather.

You Can Use One Island for Display and Decorations

An extra island can also be used for display and decorations. You can add a beautiful vase or flowers to one island, and use the other island for your cookware or dishes. This will add some extra style to your kitchen.
