A beautiful white kitchen island like this one is a fantastic addition to any home. It adds a trendy and up to date design as well as a lot of functionality. They can be used for extra seating and counterspace like in this photo, or they can contain extra appliances, sinks, ranges and extra storage. If you want to add a unit like this to your kitchen, but dont want to spend a ton of money an island table is your best bet. They are fairly expensive, quick to build, and can be fit into virtually any floorplan. If you are going to add this feature to your house, I would suggest taking the time to carefully plan its placement before you get started. I find that keeping a sense of symmetry is the key to ensuring that a kitchen island table fits seamlessly into your design. Oftentimes they are placed in front of a major decorative or functional element such as a large range and hood. Balance out the design with a beautiful light fixture like this contemporary bronze piece. Then finish off the look with an eye catching countertop and stools.
One of our most requested home improvement projects for 2022 is adding a granite kitchen island to an existing floor plan. Homeowners want to update their current layout with one of these multipurpose features because it is a quick and fairly easy way to make your kitchen look brand new without having to replace cabinets and other major elements. If you are going to jump on board and utilize this popular trend in your home, make sure that you use kitchen island ideas that blend well with the style and color palette of your existing design. If you have a traditional home, I would not add a sleek and industrial looking island. Similarly, an ornately panelled unit would look very out of place in a contemporary style home. Also, keep an eye on scale when picking out your island plans. If you have a small space with narrow floorplan, I would not advise installing a kitchen island table because it will likely be too large for your footprint. There is nothing that gives away an amateur design like large pieces that are off scale.
I have never seen a cool rustic kitchen island like this one in all of the designs I have been browsing on here. The ashy distressed wood and simple panelling looks like it was built from some old barn wood or antique planks. I love how the darker shade of the island contrasts against the muted grey wall cabinets, to create a highly decorative look. We have a similarly styled home with exposed beams, dark wood floors, and touches of stone and brick. The existing kitchen layout is large and open, but we have an expanse of empty space in the center where we would look to add a large kitchen island with granite top similar to this one. I dont want it to be one of those super traditional styles with carvings and excessive paneling. The simple yet beautiful design of this kitchen island table looks perfect to me. I also like the lovely contrast between the creamy granite top that coordinates with the chair upholstery, against the bold dark wood beneath. In fact, I love the design so much that I am going to show our interior decorator this picture and ask her to recreate it.
This long kitchen island is an absolutely spectacular addition to an already gorgeous room one that even a professional chef would love to have. I adore this kitchen, from the huge floorplan to the classic black cabinetry, stainless accents, edgy industrial touches and everything in between. While I certainly do not have the square footage to add this space to my own home, there are elements that I certainly want to attempt to recreate. If I had to choose just one feature to copy, I really want to mimic their gigantic kitchen island with stools, storage and range top. Not only does it add extra seating, but the loads of storage and counter space would be perfect to make my kitchen more functional. Cooking is my passion, and my current space just does not accommodate an avid home chef like me. While I cannot really modify my existing cabinetry without spending and arm and a leg, I could easily add a kitchen island table like this. It would instantly update the look of my kitchen and greatly improve the functionality.
One of the hottest trends in interior design for 2022 is incorporating a kitchen island with seating into your floor plans. This is certainly not a new idea. Architects and interior decorators have been adding islands to their layouts for years now. The biggest change this year is the new and creative use of the kitchen island table. Unlike your traditional design, these units have a separate sitting area, usually at a different height than the main counter space. This lovely contemporary space is a good illustration of the extremely popular type of kitchen island designs I am talking about. The main part of the unit coordinates with the rest of the cabinetry, but there is a large lower level with a different colored countertop that offers a remarkable additional 8 seats. If you have the space to incorporate a trendy kitchen island with seating, it is a great way to make your kitchen more conducive to entertaining or for larger families to spend time with each other while preparing meals.
I have been browsing all over the place for kitchen design ideas to update our current space. This one really stood out to me due to the simple white cabinets and unexpected black kitchen island placed in the center. Usually when I see a white kitchen, it is paired with marble countertops or some sort of light tan granite, never a bold black color like this. I love the contrast between the dark and light colors, especially in a space of this size. I thought that a large kitchen island like this would feel overwhelming or not quite to scale in a fairly small to average size floorplan as the photo appears to show. However, I feel like it actually makes the layout seem longer and larger. It certainly makes the kitchen more functional and really takes advantage of the square footage they do have. I have decided that I will add a kitchen island table like this to our home, and mimic the same black and white color scheme. We have a little bit larger of a space, so I think I can get a way with making and even longer unit than this one.
