6 Kitchen Island Ideas To Make Your Kitchen The Heart Of The Home

A kitchen island is one of the most universally popular features in a home – that much is obvious.

Assuming they have enough space, most homeowners would opt to have a kitchen island, rather than to do without.

In this article, we share 6 kitchen island ideas for more inspiration. Read on to find out more!

Want your kitchen island to be aesthetic but functional at the same time? Pair it with a hanging rack above, so that you can make use of your vertical space as well.

This is the best place to store extra cups, glasses, or utensils!

2. This Fun-Sized Kitchen Island

Who says kitchen islands have to be larger than life? It’s perfectly fine to install a small kitchen island that’s more proportionate to the size of your space.

3. This Sleek, Marbled Kitchen Island

One way to make your kitchen island the focal point? Pick a countertop that’s in a contrasting colour from the rest of your home.

In the above design, for example, we love how the white marbled island stands out amongst the darker surroundings.

4. This Kitchen Island + Dining Table Combo

Don’t like sitting on bar stools or eating at a kitchen island? You can have the best of both worlds by creating an island + dining table combo, like how these homeowners have done.

5. This Kitchen Island In A Standalone Kitchen

As you see in the above design, islands can work well in standalone kitchens as well!
