The island is one of the most versatile elements in your kitchen. It can be a food prep area, a serving space, or an extra eating area for large parties. Depending on its style and location, your island can define your work area and direct traffic away from your work triangle, leading to a more efficient and pleasant kitchen.
Here are some kitchen island style ideas from your home interior remodeling expert, Highland Design + Build:
- Eye-Catching and Colorful. As one of the main entertaining spaces at home, your kitchen needs to be both functional and appealing. One way to achieve both is by creating contrast between your island and your cabinets. Consider neutral-toned walls and add dashes of bold blue and green hues through your kitchen island for an eye-catching design.
- Industrial and Metallic. The industrial look is a popular style for kitchens because of its all-business, minimalist appeal. When planning for your kitchen remodeling project, especially the island, lighting is a key element to the overall look. If you???re leaning towards more neutral color for your countertops and cabinets, consider metallic pendant lighting to complement your island. Complete the look with exposed pipes and polished furnishing.
- Sleek and Efficient. Kitchens require enough storage space for efficiency, but with limited room, finding the right balance can be hard. Consider designing a kitchen island that has a countertop overhang for your barstools, which could solve storage struggles. This allows you to add both storage and seating space without taking up too much room.
- Multipurpose and Modern. Who says your island can???t multitask? Invest in an island with two distinct halves, one for storage and one for dining. Painting it in monochromatic colors emphasizes its clean lines and simplicity for a modern look.
