If you’re looking to make a statement in your kitchen, installing a Silver Wave marble waterfall island is a sure-fire way to do it. The bold addition gives this simple kitchen an element of sophistication, while bringing the playful pendant chandelier’s colours to life. Traditional French doors contrast the heavy grey and walnut palette, adding airiness to the interior.
Kitchen islands are critical components in any kitchen. A multipurpose surface, they allow prep work, cooking, eating, working, and entertaining. For that reason, they’re also one of the most requested features in homes, both in purchases and renovations, but kitchen islands can vary tremendously in size and style, and aren’t right for every home.
Some islands are for preparing food. Often they have a prep sink or a kitchen cook top in them. This can be a good area to put an under-counter microwave or a wine fridge in also.
Kitchen islands are common in modern kitchens. Other than providing workspace, they also allow people to sit and eat in the kitchen. They are often the focal point in the kitchen as they are placed in the centre.
A U-shaped island is even bigger. This provides even more space but is also one of the largest styles. You probably won’t see this style in a standard-sized house.
Kitchen islands serve a number of purposes. In addition to being a visual anchor in the space, they also help increase the room’s functionality and efficiency.
