If you’re planning to renovate your kitchen, a large island bench is a must. In a contemporary Australian kitchen it becomes the heart and soul of the home – serving as a prep area, drinks station or lean-and-chat space.

Getting the island right in your kitchen will make or break the space. Here are eight homes with showstopping kitchen islands that elevate everything else to new heights, without compromising on functionality.

Top tips for a perfect kitchen island layout:

1. Keep seating localised in one area, so everyone can have access to the island.

2. Set up plates and cutlery at one end when entertaining and food at the other for an instant self-serve buffet, perfect for feeding a crowd.

3. Incorporate storage into the island to service both sides – draws on the kitchen side and open shelving where it faces the living room to display objects and keep cookbooks within easy reach.
