An Island Retreat

At Arden, we understand that the kitchen is the heart of any home – the hub of activity and entertainment. That’s why we include kitchen islands with Caesarstone benchtops as a standard inclusion in all of our home ranges. 


Kitchen island benches present a selection of beautiful benefits, from enhanced space to seamless integration with other living spaces. Discover all the reasons why we love including kitchen islands in our homes here:


Additional bench and preparation space

When picturing the perfect kitchen, we’re confident most home buyers and builders would place ample bench space at the top of the list. Ensuring your kitchen maximises usable bench and preparation space not only makes it more functional, but more appealing to use. Island benches are the perfect way to amplify your kitchen’s bench space, creating an expansive area for chopping, mixing, kneading and serving.


Additional storage

A kitchen without storage space is like a bedroom without a wardrobe – impractical and difficult to keep tidy. In fact, when it comes to kitchens, the more storage the better! That’s where island benches become entirely valuable; they provide additional storage and cabinetry that enhances and maximises overall space. Island benches can also be the perfect place to feature an integrated dishwasher, central stovetop or central sink.


Additional seating

Space for extra seating is always a bonus – especially for families or when entertaining. Kitchen island benches allow space for breakfast stools or other forms of seating, that cater for guests and extra bodies, without overcrowding. 


A versatile fixture

Perhaps the most valuable feature of an island bench, is its ability to serve a variety of functions. From breakfast bar, to serving space, to a table for entertainment, an island bench enables your kitchen to adopt a multitude of forms with ease. This maximises your kitchen’s functionality, making it great for growing and changing families. 


All of Arden’s kitchens are delivered through a commitment to considered and intelligent design. Both functional and beautiful, they include features that will become indispensable to your lifestyle and key to your enjoyment. All of our home designs include a kitchen island with a resilient and strong Caesarstone benchtop, that amplifies space and functionality.
