If you want to save some space, you can just go for a longer or wider kitchen island and use the additional length or width or eating. It’s very smart and you won’t need to buy additional furniture – just a couple of stools. The eating zone may be the continuation of the kitchen island or may be made of some different material to highlight and separate it. The eating space can be raised to a different height for comfort.
It’s also common for the kitchen to feature small bursts of color. These are focal points that are strategically placed and that can also be seen in the rest of the house as well. So whether it’s a bright-colored appliance, a set of colorful plates, a piece of furniture or a floral arrangement, the goal is always the same: to break the monotony and to create a fresh décor.
It’s not a proper rustic post until shiplap has been mentioned. But in all seriousness, shiplap is the perfect way to add some interest and farmhouse flair to your dull kitchen island. Plus, it’s a cheap weekend project which means five stars. Most people fall into one of two concrete counter categories: they like it or they don’t. If you’re a lover, don’t hesitate to add a concrete countertop to your kitchen island.
Moreover, your kitchen island can do even more! Today we are discussing one more cool kitchen island function: kitchen islands that double as a dining table, or just have a dining or seating area. If you have a big kitchen island, if it’s built up of several rectangles, you may place a seating or dining area right inside it, it will be a very cozy and comfy eating corner or breakfast corner. Of course, it works only if your kitchen is big enough and you have enough space for such a big kitchen island.
