In addition to creating more counter space, an island is also a way to add more storage and avoid kitchen clutter by using drawers, cupboards and shelves. This is beneficial especially if appliances take up a lot of cabinet room, or if you’re looking for a unique way to showcase certain items by using open shelving. Store dishes and pots within reach or keep less frequently used appliances out of the way. Another option is to use open shelving to display cookbooks or other items.
Remember all those times when you were told to think outside of the box in order to find a solution to your design conundrum? Now is another one of those moments. The image of a square kitchen island is so popular that many of us automatically gravitate towards this textbook idea. Yet there are plenty of other designs and styles available. An L-shaped or T-shaped addition, a lovely circular installation or a cool elliptical island inspired by the surfboard–the possibilities are simply endless. Let your kitchen dictate the shape and size of the island and do not fall prey to the stereotypical conventions.
A nook is a cozy space designed to provide an intimate meal space for just two or four people. Generally a breakfast nook is tucked away in the corner of a kitchen or within a bay window. If possible, start by adding a padded window seat. This provides you with a great opportunity to show some personality and add some color to your space with an interesting fabric pattern and a few charming pillows.
