We All Want To Own An Island!
Most of the definitions of an island include the word isolation. Most say an island is something detached from other things. Technically all this is true. However, don’t you think an island in the kitchen is just the opposite of all this? We do.
It’s Friday Favorites!
On Wednesday we talked about The Kitchen Table-Bring It Back Please! We really enjoyed hearing from so many of you in the comments and thru emails. Seems we all have some nice memories of kitchen table time! To finish up the week, let’s talk about the other center piece in our kitchens and look at some of our favorites. Large, small, built-in or freestanding, an island is a desired feature in most kitchens. We all love them!
Built In Kitchen Islands
Larger kitchen islands are generally planned within the cabinet design of a kitchen. Configured with storage, and the possibility of sinks and cooktops, these units are built to stay. These workhorses can be pretty amazing!
Freestanding Kitchen Islands
A freestanding island is one that is not built-in and can be moved. There is not a sink or range top in this type of island. Along with a work surface, these attractive pieces in a kitchen can offer additional open storage and seating. Smaller than built-in cabinet islands yet so design savvy!
