Pros & Cons of Island-Style Kitchen Countertops, Anchorage, Alaska

While kitchen islands are widely coveted for their attractive look and functionality, there are pros and cons to installing one in your Anchorage, AK, home. Since kitchen countertops are an important investment, many customers work with an experienced installation team like Rino’s Tile & Stone to help them determine if an island will enhance their interior. From size to cost, they explain the pros and cons of this modern kitchen design staple below. 


kitchen-countertopsKitchen countertops of this variety are ideal for large houses or homes with a built-out cooking space. A well-designed kitchen island can alter or improve the room’s layout and gives homeowners more counter space to bake, eat, and gather.

Drawers also provide storage for pots, pans, and bowls. Convert your island to a seating space for guests or remove the need for a dining table with a bar-style setup. The possibilities are endless with the multi-functional features that kitchen islands provide. 


No matter how great they look, countertop islands don’t work well in apartments and cottages where space is limited. In a room where access to appliances and cooking tools is critical, an ill-fitting island can hinder the kitchen’s very purpose.

Homeowners on a budget should also consider the necessity of installing a kitchen island, which also commonly includes fixtures like sinks and stoves. If there is another way you can attain your countertop goal without the need for an island, consider it with your installation team before moving forward. 

If you think a kitchen island may be right for you, it’s time to get in touch with the installation experts.
