20 Dreamy Kitchen Islands
Build In Functionality
Sophisticated — but unexpected — spaces are designer Sarah Richardson ‘s claim to fame and this chic-but-user-friendly kitchen is no exception. When designing the island, Sarah worked in conveniences like a grab-and-go beverage chiller, under-counter microwave and a small second sink so more than one person could prep meals at the same time.
Make the Island Fit the Space
If you think that an island only works with an open-concept layout, this galley kitchen designed by TerraCotta Properties is proof positive that an island can work in a smaller kitchen. The key is to customize the piece to fit the space and allow for traffic flow — around 36 inches — on all sides.
