Kitchen Islands with Built-in Appliances: Adding Functionality to Your Space
Picture this: It’s Thanksgiving Day, and you’re hosting the whole family for the first time. You’ve got a turkey roasting in the oven, potatoes boiling on the stove, and a mountain of dishes piling up in the sink.
As you frantically search for counter space to finish prepping the green bean casserole, you can’t help but wish your kitchen had a little more room to breathe. If this scene sounds all too familiar, it might be time to consider a game-changing addition to your kitchen: a versatile and functional island with built-in appliances. In this blog post, we’ll dive into the world of kitchen islands and explore how incorporating built-in appliances can help you turn your kitchen from a chaotic mess into an efficient, enjoyable, and envy-worthy space.
Benefits of Kitchen Islands with Built-in Appliances
Did you know that, according to a report by the National Association of Home Builders, 78% of homebuyers consider a kitchen island as a highly desirable feature?
There’s no denying that kitchen islands have captured the hearts of homeowners everywhere, and for good reason. When you combine an island with built-in appliances, you’re not only adding style but also a whole new level of functionality to your space.
Let’s explore the benefits of having a kitchen island with built-in appliances:
Space-saving solutions: By incorporating appliances into your kitchen island, you can eliminate the need for additional standalone units, freeing up valuable floor and counter space. This is especially beneficial for small or compact kitchens where every inch counts.
Efficient use of kitchen space: Having built-in appliances within your island streamlines your workflow, reducing the need to walk back and forth between appliances and prep areas. This centralized approach can make meal preparation quicker and more enjoyable.
Enhanced kitchen workflow: A well-planned kitchen island with built-in appliances can improve the overall layout of your kitchen. By creating separate zones for cooking, washing, and food preparation, you can establish a more efficient and ergonomic work triangle.
Here are some tips to guide you through the decision-making process:
Assessing your needs and priorities: Before diving into the world of built-in appliances, take a moment to evaluate your kitchen habits, needs, and priorities. Consider which appliances will be most beneficial to your daily routine and cooking style, as well as the features you value most.
Size considerations for appliances and island dimensions: The size of your kitchen island and the appliances you choose will directly impact the overall functionality and aesthetics of your space. Be sure to measure your available space carefully and select appliances that fit comfortably within your island’s dimensions without overwhelming it.
Matching appliance styles with your kitchen design: To achieve a cohesive look, choose appliances that complement the existing style and color scheme of your kitchen. Consider factors such as the finish, color, and overall design of the appliances, as well as how they’ll blend with your cabinetry, countertops, and other design elements.
Energy efficiency and smart appliance features: Today’s appliances come with a wide range of features and technologies designed to save energy and make your life easier. Look for appliances with Energy Star certification and consider smart appliance options that offer remote control, voice activation, or integration with your smart home system.
The trick is to find the right balance between aesthetics and functionality. With careful consideration, you can create a beautiful and efficient kitchen island with built-in appliances that meets your needs and enhances the overall look of your space.

EJB was a true pleasure to do business with. Rebecca took charge of the entire design process from initial consultation, layout and proposed solutions to items we brought to her for ideas, subcontracting with the counter installer, always keeping us in the loop and fielding tons of questions we had along the way. Evan and his crew were totally professional, considerate of our home and installed an awesome, high quality product. One last thing, their price for total custom kitchen was the less than another area kitchen cabinet installer’s semi custom price and without the concierge service EJB offers. We love our new cabinets and cannot wait to show them off to our friends and family. We would highly recommend EJB for your cabinet needs.
We were very happy with the final product on our home renovation. The kitchen turned out beautiful. Elliot was always easy to get ahold of and always stayed in communication throughout the project. He stuck with the timeline and did everything he could to meet that deadline. We love our new floors and kitchen and have Elliot to thank for a job well done!
Never did I imagine that the kitchen of our dreams could be a reality until we met Elliot and EJB Kitchens & Home Improvement, Inc team. After discovering water & mold damage in our kitchen after the holidays is when we had to find a local contractor that could work with what we wanted to do with cabinet replacements, as well as a specific budget and timeframe in mind too. Elliot came up with a plan that not only increased our cabinet space for storage, but gave us a kitchen that we can and will enjoy for many years to come.
I think we met with several contractors and home improvement specialists in the area prior to the EJB, but if you are seeking a professional whose team creates gorgeous spaces for you, your family and friends, stop reading this review and give EJB Kitchens & Home Improvement, Inc. a call. Personally, I know exactly who I plan to reach out to if and when our family are ready for our next home improvement!
My wife and I absolutely love our new kitchen! Throughout the entire process, Elliott made us feel comfortable and ensured we were satisfied with the final product. In addition, since Elliot specializes in custom work, when we encountered a few issues, he came up with creative solutions. The workers he used were very respectful and professional.

You would not recognize the place it is amazing.i just love everything he has done . And it was immaculately clean before I moved in.great job Dee Hamberg
EJB Kitchens recently gutted our villa and made it look like new. The cabinetry work, the flooring, the tile work, the shower enclosures came out absolutely beautiful. The design and layout of our place makes it look spacious and beyond our expectations…. I highly recommend EJB Kitchens especially if you want to turn something ordinary into something spectacular….
Elliot and his team remodeled my kitchen earlier this year and did a spectacular job. He was responsive and easy to work with and he got the job done on time and on budget. I highly recommend his services.
EJB Kitchens transformed my 1985 kitchen into a stunning modern kitchen. Mr. Buran eased us into choosing the materials that best suited our tastes and his workers were very efficient and courteous. Both my wife and I would highly recommend EJB Kitchens if you’re looking to upgrade your home.
We are so happy with our new kitchen thanks to Elliott and EJB Kitchens. Excellent craftsmanship. EJB did a great job when it came to all the little details that count the most. Great pricing and very every penny!
