Need help with kitchen island
August 6, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We had an island custom built to serve multi purposes including serving a buffet, preparing food or working on craft projects. The island sits under an i-beam running east/west so the carpenter also dropped the ceiling running north/south. However, the kitchen end of the island is too far away from the kitchen counter. Can anyone suggest how we might move the island closer to the kitchen side of our open-concept living/kitchen room? Please see the photos and take special note of the dropped ceiling and also where the carpet meets the hardwood floor. How can the island be moved a foot or two closer to the kitchen without having to reconfigure the dropped ceiling and floor?
