Styles are being updated and new ones are created but the materials used remain the same. We rarely get to introduce new materials. In most cases we just find new ways of using them. Creativity is very important in this case. You get to use the same basic elements but you also get to be ingenious and to come up with new ways of using them.
The kitchen is an odd room. It’s a space originally designed for cooking but, with time, it has also become a social space where friends and families spend time together, where they chat while someone is making dinner or where they simply gather to socialize. But a kitchen needs to be, first of all, functional. It’s a space where style comes second but, nevertheless, doesn’t have to be ignored. It’s a space where everything has to be perfectly balanced.
When you’re leaning towards industrial styling in your home, you definitely need to think more rustic in yout kitchen. A thick chunky wood kitchen island will fulfill all your storage needs without diverting from the industrial feel. Are you trying to bring color and life into your already rustic kitchen? Paint it. Choose the brightest color that makes you happy and paint your kitchen island. Just that one pop will change the feel of the entire room, no cabinet painting required.
This concept can become a good choice as the island gives you a multifunctional purpose of a dining, preparation and sitting area without having to invest or waste any more space. There’s no kitchen without a kitchen island, even if you think that such a piece isn’t for a small kitchen, you are wrong. Kitchen islands are super functional: these are cooking, washing, peeling and storage pieces; they can accommodate lots of appliances, tableware, dishes, pet food and bowls, books and magazines.
