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 don’t 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.
One of our most requested home improvement projects for 2019 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.
One of the hottest trends in interior design for 2019 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.
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.
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 don’t want it to be one of those super traditional styles with carvings and excessive paneling.
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.
