Choosing Your Kitchen Island Design

These kitchen island designs can give you an idea about what to do with your space. Which one is right for your lifestyle?

  • Oversized islands. Who says a kitchen island has to be small? Make it the center of attention by incorporating your stovetop and sink into the design, and use your traditional kitchen countertop area for prep work and storage.
  • Small and mobile. On the other hand, a small kitchen island that can be moved from place to place provides storage, extra countertop space when you need it, and the flexibility to remove it at your whim.
  • Wine storage. For the wine lover, a kitchen island design that incorporates a wine rack and chilling fridge could be the perfect accent to your kitchen.
  • Double duty. Though an extra dishwasher or mini-fridge might seem like a luxury, it's more of a necessity when you have a large family or do a lot of entertaining. Let your kitchen island design make life easier.
  • Casual dining. Don't want to use the formal dining room? Intimate, casual dining is a breeze with a wide kitchen island and a few tall chairs. A butcher block countertop adds warmth and flexibility to the design.
  • Little Extras. Do you like to watch television while you cook? Do you have a huge library of cookbooks that requires extra shelf space? Make your kitchen island design your own by incorporating the little extras that matter to you.

Your kitchen island design can be fun and functional. Which design elements appeal to you?
