Designing the ideal kitchen island

When you’re designing a kitchen, the size, shape, material, and design of the island are one of the most prominent decisions. This can be a point of contrast or a compliment to the overall style of the kitchen. You can also decide to anchor it to the floor or make it movable to adjust as needed. 

It is also important to consider your custom needs in the kitchen. For example, if you’re looking for a professional-style kitchen, consider a stainless steel island top for durability. Bakers, on the other hand, would favour marble as it makes tempering chocolate a breeze.

One of the best ways to bring life and luxury to your kitchen island is by allowing the counter to continuously flow to the floor creating a waterfall effect. Another prominent trend is to incorporate thick countertop surfaces with rounded edges

Start with a blank canvas 

One of the simplest ways to bring your island to life is by styling it. Beginning with a blank slate, you can dress it with your favourite appliances, potted herbs and cookery books, or keep it sleek and minimal. In terms of design, you can accentuate the space by hanging pendant lights  and add points of interest with textured surfaces and mixing materials in the cabinetry.

The masterful art of combining materials creates a kitchen with depth and artistic combinations. Consider pairing natural wood with traditional ceramics or natural stone with a glossy lacquer finish. Each of these choices conveys a feeling and contributes to  the overall ambience. 

Islands are the anchor. Convert your kitchen island into a star feature where you can cook and entertain. As a versatile part of kitchen design, there are many ways to integrate an island creatively, whether as a functional space, a dining space, or both.
