According to the National Association of HomeBuilders (NAHB), kitchen islands are one of the most popular kitchen design features among today’s consumers. The NAHB also reports that buyers of new homes have also indicated a desire for kitchen islands as well. Actually some 80% of homebuyers consider a kitchen island to be an absolute must.
Probably the first decision most buyers make is to determine whether they prefer a single well or a double well. These are the two main configurations. Triple well models are also available, along with specialty styles like trough sinks and integrated drain-board sinks. A single well is great for those who regularly prepare large turkeys, host dinner parties or like to preserve food for the winter. A single well is also handy for washing small dogs and bathing grubby babies. Double well sinks serve two cook families and those who like to multi-task, rinsing vegetables for the salad in one well, while cleaning up in the other well.
