The answer is: Space and functionality.
The question is: Why do you need two kitchen islands?
Having two kitchen islands, to some, may seem like it will crowd your kitchen and dining area up, but it does the opposite. It adds to the amount of counter space you have and can double your dining area.
Below, we have put together a gallery of kitchens featuring two islands. We absolutely love the look it can create. For those of you who love a good balance in the kitchen, you will love what you see. We really like how most of the islands in one kitchen aren’t matching, with each bringing a bit of character to the space.
