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.
Lighting is obviously a key element of any kitchen, regardless of whether or not it features an island. Pendant lights are generally the most preferred choice for kitchen islands, and if you need some additional help in choosing the right pendants for your kitchen, check out these stunning pendant light inspirations. You might also decide to add a layer of recessed lighting as well, making it possible for you to switch between focused functional lights and soft ambient lighting whenever required. The rule of three is another perennial favorite that never seems to go out of style when it comes to kitchen lighting.
Create an original table out of four wood pallets. A pallet table is functional for both indoors and outdoor use, with its simple and rustic look. The table can be customized to size, and its design can change as you build. (Be sure to choose wood pallets that have not been chemically treated.) Finish it off with oil, wax, or a polyurethane/deck sealer to add durability and weather-proofing, and you’re done.
