As the heart of the home, your kitchen is one area that you really want to shine. It is also an area that, when properly renovated, can significantly add to the value of your home
With this in mind, what does the ideal kitchen need – and what is the most stylish kitchen addition of 2018?
An island bench
An island bench is a fantastic and stylish kitchen addition for a number of reasons. It’s practical with added bench space, it allows for additional storage in cupboards underneath, it can double as a breakfast bar with high stools and it can create a communal feel and is easy for entertaining! Imagine you have friends and family over for a dinner party. Your guests are in your dining room, enjoying a glass of pre-dinner wine and you’re busy preparing in the kitchen. With an island bench, your guests call mingle around the kitchen without getting in the way. They can also sit on high bar stools at your island bench, enjoying their wine and nibbles, making your kitchen an entertaining destination, rather than just a practical space.
An island bench with high bar stools is also the perfect location for kids to complete their homework while mum and dad prepare dinner and make sure the homework is actually being completed. It’s also an easy spot to enjoy breakfast or afternoon snacks.
