Take advantage of being able to use the space above the island by adding suspended storage, where you can display a matching pan collection or your best stemware. You can also experiment with lighting elements, or if you’ve decided to install a stovetop with overhead venting you can use the space for the range hood.
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.
Just as they are one of the most sought-after vacation spots, islands are now the most frequently requested kitchen-design element. With the vast array of design options out there, kitchen islands can be incredibly versatile, expand your workspace and infuse your kitchen with personality. So take a tour. The adventure’s about to begin.
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.
Now more than ever before, folks are entertaining at home, and most of that takes place—you guessed it—around the kitchen island. And island design has followed suit. Home owners are requesting longer, leaner islands with room to seat as many as eight or more, as well as more space around the perimeter to help accommodate a crowd.
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.
Whether your space lacks a proper dining table or you’re looking to create a more casual bar-seating option, adding low-profile seating to the island is an easy way to increase functionality and make the environment more social for both guests and the cook. Create a breakfast bar or dining table, and leave a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath when not in use.
