An island is a brilliant centerpiece that will instantly lift the appeal of your kitchen. But planning for it is all about putting practicality ahead of aesthetics! And if you are still stuck when it comes to making decisions about the design of your island, it is best to call in some expert help. At the end of the day, it’s all about designing that beautiful kitchen of your dreams…
A countertop for the kitchen island should not just blend in with the style of the kitchen and its existing theme, it also must reflect your own cooking skills and culinary taste. Add a butcher block if you are planning to utilize the island for food preparation, while a classy marble countertop is perfect if baking consumes most of your time at the island. Stainless steel countertops are both sturdy and durable, and quartz is an equally popular choice in modern kitchens.
Open shelving doubles as a handy storage solution and an imaginative styling tactic. Alcoves for shelves cut into the island are an eye-catching feature, and can be used to neatly store kitchen items, or decorate with vases, cookbooks and ornaments.
