Kitchen Island Countertops Ideas

Not sure what to do with your kitchen island countertops? Check out these ideas:

  • Extra cooking space. If you often cook for a crowd, extra cooking space could be a necessity. Opt for a range in your kitchen island, or put tile kitchen countertops over a roomy oven. Choose a flat-top range that fits seamlessly with your countertops for a sleek yet functional look.
  • Sink for easier cleanup. A sink in your island makes it much easier to clean up after dinner or entertaining. The design of a flat kitchen island allows for a wide variety of faucet options, and the extra space allows you to clean veggies, wash fruits, and handle other small jobs while leaving the main sink open for other things.
  • Go dramatic with ornate designs. Your kitchen island can be a functional work of art! Dramatic accents, such as a ledge on the back of your island countertop, or making full use of the island space by installing a wine rack underneath, are both great ways to make the most of a unique space.
  • Get your countertops in shape! Kitchen islands usually have square or rectangular countertops, but there are several options to choose from. Look into gently arched kitchen island countertops, or those in an "L" shape to better fit into your tight kitchen spaces.
