Keep it simple while adding value by using an island to significantly increase the amount of counter space in your kitchen. Having more counter space adds obvious benefits: more room for meal prep, multiple chefs and can serve as an eating area. Create contrast by using a different material or color for the island counters than you did in the rest of the room. If your regular countertops are white quartz, try black or a dark stained wood for the island.
Many timber home owners are finding that when it comes to designing ample kitchen space, one island simply isn't enough. Dual islands with designated work zones and specialized storage areas are cropping up more and more, giving the kitchen ample surface space for multiple chefs to perform their culinary magic.
These carts have at least one side on wheels with storage space under the countertop. Some have drawers and cabinet space underneath. This type of kitchen island is practical and ideal for a kitchen area that is smaller but needs the additional counter space. It can easily be pushed to the side during entertainment or if table space is needed. This style won’t break the bank and is something that you can add to your kitchen this weekend.
Nothing says the perimeter of your kitchen island has to be symmetrical. Have a little fun when it comes to the shape. Whether it's crescent shaped, wavy or completely indefinable, if it suits your taste (and fits your kitchen and your budget), go for it.
There are many different ways you can approach this decision, and since an island takes up a significant amount of floor space it’s worth it to take time to make every element of its design intentional.
From creating more counter space to adding additional seating, we’ve selected a few different kitchen island ideas that will help you get the most out of it. Choose one or combine multiple of the design elements below to create the feature that works best in your room.
