Some kitchens contain detached cabinets that are open and accessible from all four sides—these are called islands. Islands can provide a range of attractive options for kitchens. Most commonly, they’re used as additional space to store appliances, when there is no room to spare in the cabinets attached to the walls. An island can also be outfitted with a cooktop, allowing extra food-preparation possibilities; it also provides dining space for guests. A lot of islands are permanently anchored to the floor, creating a U-shaped walkway in the room; non-anchored models, called mobile islands, move from place to place to accommodate the needs of kitchen users. A spiffy, well-maintained island enhances the appeal and functionality of the entire kitchen, and by extension increases the sale price of the home.
