Kitchen Islands

Storage, counter space, seating, prep station -- a kitchen island can be all these things and more. These versatile kitchen island ideas can be modified to suit your needs. Are you a baker? Choose kitchen islands and carts that can be outfitted with bins for your supplies and include countertops conducive to rolling dough. Is storage your main kitchen concern? Then select a kitchen island design with deep drawers and slide-out shelving that transforms dead space into usable storage. Because of its usual location in the center of the kitchen, the island becomes a natural focal point. It makes sense, then, to choose an island that accentuates your kitchen's decor. Kitchen islands with cabinets to match your kitchen design are always a safe choice. Add a high-low countertop to distinguish the eating area from kitchen countertop space. Or position the sink or cooktop on the island to create a stand-alone workstation. Another option is to think outside the box by considering a freestanding island, such as an antique table or a restaurant-grade cart. Consider the size and layout of your kitchen when determining the dimensions of your island. Even small kitchen islands can add function and additional storage. Browse photos of kitchen islands to find kitchen islands plans, kitchen islands designs, lighting for kitchen islands, kitchen islands stools, outdoor kitchen islands, and more.
