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.
The simplicity and freshness typical to this style are perfect when combined with optimal storage and clever and efficient layouts. Open shelves are particularly common in Scandinavian kitchens. They’re considered really practical, allowing you to easily organize, store and display items which are always within reach and easy to find. Even though white is not the most practical color when it comes to the kitchen, Scandinavian decors always find a way to make it seem stylish.
Monochromatic modern kitchens is another super popular idea for modern spaces because it’s also timeless and looks more interesting than neutrals due to bold contrasts. You can go for black and white cabinets, or choose only some touches in black, for example, a kitchen island, a backsplash and chairs or stools. To add interest to the space, you may go for stone or marble surfaces, wooden touches and metallic lamps, handles and even a hood.
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.
