Instead of installing a giant brick structure in the middle of the kitchen to place your groceries, one can incorporate electric and plumbing into the kitchen island. A good island should always have everything within reach. A sink should be nearby for chopping fruits and vegetables. Having an electric stove installed within is also a great idea.
Kitchen Islands have become so popular that this has even led to the creation of unique design styles of their own. A kitchen island can have the same design as the main counter and cabinets or it can have its own unique design.
Some older homes with an awkward kitchen floor plan with limited space can also benefit from a kitchen island design idea. Closed off kitchens have been transformed into more open looking kitchens by lowering existing walls half way to forms islands between the kitchen and nearby living space.

What can we expect to pay for an island during a remodel? This one is too hard to answer because there are simply too many choices. A "ready to install" stock island you can purchase in a home store with connections for drainage and power can run about $800. A custom concrete countertop island with sink, cooktop, and wine refrigerator can easily eclipse $10,000.
Allow adequate countertop space on both sides (left and right) of the kitchen island if a sink or cooktop will be used. Include at least 15 inches of countertop space on each side, and if your kitchen is large enough, allow even more space. You can never have too much countertop space in a kitchen. Also, rounded countertop corners help protect everyone from bad bruises -- this is true about all kitchen countertop corners.
Kitchen islands are great for open floor plans. Placed directly in the center, such they can easily control incoming traffic at huge gatherings. They also include a raised eating area, a sink, dishwasher and drawers. It is also useful as a serving surface for large groups or a dining area for small gatherings.
