A kitchen can be transformed with the addition of an island. Typically, a kitchen island is in the center of the kitchen and is seen as a statement piece. Custom kitchen islands serve many purposes, so why not make yours as unique as your style? Different materials, shapes, and sizes can contribute to making your island complete the kitchen of your dreams.
A traditional kitchen island as pictured above is what many people are accustomed to seeing. Typically with a granite or marble countertop, these islands are perfect for meal prep and accomplishing everyday tasks. The island seating creates a perfect way to gather the family together while cooking.
If you aren’t afraid to experiment with color, this island could be the perfect choice. Since the island is located in the center of the space, it is a statement piece in the room. This Picasso-inspired look has a unique feel and gives just the right amount of abstract color that this kitchen needed.
Different shaped islands are also a great way to open up a space. Using a round design can free up more room in the kitchen and also make a large countertop space to utilize for cooking purposes. Using a round shape can also bring in many other design ideas, such as a circular pot rack and different types of kitchen lighting.
Trying out different materials rather than the typical marble and granite is also another way to make your island unique. Using a wood slab can bring a rustic look to your kitchen or just create a more natural atmosphere in your home.
Looking for somewhere to store cookbooks and other kitchen novelties? Adding a bookcase style kitchen island can resolve that problem. This is also a great way to get rid of clutter around the kitchen and organize it in a creative way.
