The kitchen usually becomes the heart of the home. It’s where families and guests naturally gather to relax, share stories, cook, and eat together! It’s no surprise then that kitchens are the number one to-do on most homeowners’ remodeling wish lists. A kitchen without an island can often feel empty and incomplete and sometimes you don’t even realize it until you get to experience just how great life with a kitchen island is.
