1- An Island provides additional Storage Space:

Who can’t use added storage units in a kitchen? if you design the island with cabinets, drawers, and shelves it gives you extra bottom cabinets that are easier to access than the top units.

2- A Kitchen Island is a Separate Work Top:

An island gives you an additional space to cut and prepare food. One super functional idea  is to add a movable cutting board on the countertop with the trash bin underneath. This way, it will be easy for you to cut and prepare food and then throw the waste down the bin and get rid of the mess instantly. This will also keep the trash bin in a separate place away from other cabinets and kitchen units.

3- Islands can serve as an Eating Table or a little Dining Area: 

This would be great for socializing during parties. We all love to have a little chat while preparing coffee or food when we  have people over. It is also perfect for kids, they can have their meals inside the kitchen to avoid messing up other rooms in the house, or finish their homework while in close eye view.
