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.
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.
It’s such a wonderful thing to find hand-me-down treasures in your parents’ or grandparents’ attic. Remember that big old dining room table? Snap it up to use as a kitchen island. Being already lovingly worn down means you won’t be worried about using it to it’s full potential. How do you bring rustic to a rather modern kitchen? It’s all in the wood. Give your island a makeover by lining the corners in some beautiful rustic beams.
