What Did We Do Before We Had Kitchen Islands?
Long before there were central islands in a kitchen we had these things called kitchen tables and they were smack dab in the middle of the room. Many of us in the over 50 group have all kinds of memories of all the life that happened around these tables. What about you…did you grow up around a kitchen table?
The Kitchen Table Returns!
Ironically, we can’t find any written documentation about when islands took the place of a central kitchen table. Best we can find is that it all started with the idea of a peninsula and morphed into islands consistently sometime in the 80’s. In any case, for more than a generation some folks have never experienced what it means to have a kitchen table right in the middle of all the action.
But hang on! Let’s take a look at how amazing these designs are that are making the table the super star again. While we are at it, how about a few photos of the types of food we can imagine enjoying on these tables.
Hard to decide what to look at first in this kitchen with so many interesting features. The worn wood, family friendly table with a mix of metal and painted vintage chairs is spot on perfect. Soups on!
We don’t even mind the fact that it would be hard to have an island in this narrow kitchen. Not with all the seating and work surface this table and chairs offer in this attractive architectural kitchen. What type of cheese is your favorite?
Loving the white washed farm table and outdoor freshly painted green chairs in the center of this charming kitchen. Spring melons are calling us!
Lastly, you can have your cake and a beautifully artistic kitchen too. Look at all the detail in this small space that lets the table and chairs take center stage.
So what about you? Ready to give a kitchen table a new life?
