Our Pick of Locations with Kitchen Islands

Sophie Hitchens Wednesday 10th May 2023

A well-designed kitchen island provides a fantastically functional addition to your kitchen space and a special spot in your home where family and friends can come together. They offer extra counter space and storage and can deliver an eating area, sink or home for many gadgets and appliances. And however you choose to use an island, they allow you to incorporate a gorgeous worktop material or unusual colour or texture for a distinctive interior design. 

But it’s not just adding function to a beautiful home where kitchen islands excel. They make a fantastic addition to a location in the photo shoot industry, offering versatility and shoot choice galore.

So let’s dig into what makes kitchen islands so appealing and discover some of our favourite Light Locations boasting the best kitchen islands.


What Makes Kitchen Islands So Appealing for a location shoot?

Islands are exceptionally useful, especially if they are easily moveable. If an island is on wheels, it provides options for using the kitchen with or without it, allowing a more comprehensive range of styling options.

When the island is in place, it provides a visual centrepiece to draw the audience’s attention and a prominent place to style and display products. In addition, many crews choose to use them as a backdrop to shoot against, especially those in neutral colours or alternative materials.

As a result of their appeal, kitchen islands are one of our searchable features. So let’s take a look at some of our favourites.
