If you can fit it into your budget then custom kitchen islands can be an awesome addition to your kitchen remodel idea. For instance, this one is very cool because it is so clearly designed for comfortable snacking, while at the same time it can work perfectly for food prep. Not only that, but as you can see form the shelving, this is also a great island for storage too. So, what we have here is a kitchen design elements that is good for three different uses: eating, prepping, and storage. I would say that this is a pretty good deal and well worth the extra money.
