One of the lesser known items of furniture in the home is the kitchen island. While this may not be suitable for all if you have the right sized kitchen it can prove to be worth the investment. Take for example the Oakland Kitchen Island. This comes not only with the solid stable structure that oak offers but also with drawers, shelves and a small cupboard. What more could you want?
What the Oakland Kitchen Island offers?
- Strength and Stability
- Flexible Storage
- Extra Worktop Space
The first thing you notice when you look at the photograph is the wonderful looks. Made of oak it does come with that warm look thanks in part to the wood and part to the hand applied wax finish.
Strength and Stability
When it comes to choosing a wood that will last there is simply nothing better than oak. While other woods may offer a product that is slightly cheaper there is no doubt that oak offers you top quality strength and stability for many years to come.
This particular designs boasts a number of storage options. This is particularly good if you love to cook and entertain and have an abundance of kitchen utensils. It offers you three drawers, a small cupboard and a small shelf on either side. This will allow you to organise your kitchenware effectively keeping close on hand.
Extra Worktop Space
Finally a kitchen island offers you more storage which can again be a great thing if you are someone who likes to cook nice meals for guests. with a width of 150 cm and a depth of 65 cm it really does offer you the chance to spread yourself out when you cook.
Other Points to Note
It should be pointed out that this kitchen island is a free standing unit that will be delivered fully assembled. It is 80 kg’s which will help it to stay where you put it and of course once loaded up will weigh a lot more. As I have said above it is ideal for those with enough space in their kitchen and the need for more space. Its perfect for those how like to entertain.
It is part of the much wider Oakland Collection which is a wonderful collection of solid oak furniture that comes the whole house. There are some particularly great items for the bedroom including a number of different sized wardrobes. I’d recommend checking them out before deciding what you want. Also be sure to check out the sets they offer as you may be able to save yourself some money.
I love this unit because I think it offers you everything that you can need from an island – storage, strength and looks. As someone who cooks a lot at home I know how important it is to have space and that is why I recommend kitchen islands – they are well worth the investment.
