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 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.
Stone is such a wonderful decorating medium. All the colors and textures that the variations provide make it easy to choose one for your space. Cover the boring bits of your existing kitchen island in your favorite shade for a really cabin like look. You might think that your tiny farmhouse kitchen is just not big enough for an island, but you’re probably wrong. With some wood, stain and a free Saturday, you can build a custom rustic island for your kitchen that will double your work space.
In Scandinavian-style homes, all rooms seem to share the same design. However, they are all unique and they each have distinctive characteristics. The kitchen, for example, is a very interesting space to analyze from the perspective of this style. The kitchen in Scandinavian homes has an airy and simple décor but it’s also functional and practical. Given the fact that the kitchen is primarily a functional space although in a lot of modern homes it doubles as a social area, a Scandinavian design suits it well.
