Many homes feature that one place where everyone feels inexplicably drawn to gather. In some homes, this special place can be a favorite piece of oversized, comfortable living room furniture. In the kitchen, this place is most often the kitchen island. When kitchen islands are placed in the kitchen, they are not only a prime focal point; they become the one place where everyone ends up congregating to talk about the days’ events.
The person cooking the meal no longer has to feel as if they are relegated to the kitchen. They can now be totally involved in all the conversations and happenings within the home. Kitchen islands fit perfectly into any kitchen decor, whether style preferences lean towards ultra-modern chic, or to farmhouse style quaint and comfortable.
Distressed finishes allow the kitchen island to look as if it has always been there. An island that looks well-aged fits perfectly, especially in country-style kitchens. It also brings a beautiful, vintage patina to the kitchen. Distressed finishes available include black and white and a unique, distressed turquoise shade that gives any kitchen an extra pop of interesting color. Solid black or red kitchen islands work exceptionally well in kitchens featuring ultra-modern design.
When a kitchen island is combined with a maple butcher block top, it provides an extra functional workspace for busy cooks. The butcher block top comes in a variety of beautiful solid hard maple choices. It also features a protective bees-wax finish that is safe for food. Adjustable shelves add to the appeal of these superior quality islands.
Details like dovetailed drawers and soft-closing European hinges, along with under mount slides that also close softly are all thoughtful features that showcase the exceptional craftsmanship that has gone into these high-quality kitchen islands. Dovetail drawers are an essential part of well-built, beautiful cabinetry. Built-in wine racks are perfect for always keeping a selection of premium wines on hand to pair with food, or for thoughtful entertaining.
Smaller kitchens are perfect for featuring a smaller island like the white or black Boston style island. Measuring 34′ x 22′ x 34′, this is a furniture styled island featuring two deep drawers for extra storage. It also has an adjustable shelf, perfect for storing various sizes of cookbooks or cooking necessities. Store extra dishes, linens, or anything else that will help to free up more space in other areas of the kitchen.
The kitchen island will soon become the one place everyone will love to gather to help with cooking or to enjoy each others company. Share delicious appetizers and great conversation. Make lifelong memories while gathered around this exceptional focal point of the kitchen.
