Angies List The Kitchen Island KSFY
“The first kitchen island was designed as a food prep zone. Today, they’re the focal point of the room that many consider the heart of the home.
“Kitchen islands have been a mainstay in kitchens for decades, but they’ve really changed over the last few years, from being just plain rectangular structures to actually being almost a kitchen in themselves,” Angie’s List Founder, Angie Hicks said.
Randy Sorrell of Surroundings re-modelers says since the Great Recession ended, kitchens have taken on new meaning, appearance and functionality.
“Whenever you have a di
er party, whenever it’s Christmas or any holiday, you may start outside or you may start in the living room, but you end up in the kitchen. And now, predominantly, you’re hanging around the island,” Sorrell said.”
