The dark base of this island really grounds the bright kitchen.
Here the island includes a sink, a place to pull up a beautiful stool, and storage for pasta.
This marble used on the top and sides gives this island clean lines.
The lighting unifies the island. Check out that clever spot for a pot rack.
This mega-island even has room for a library of cookbooks.
A butcher block section gives cooks a place to cut.
Rounded edges add elegance to this open kitchen/dining area.
This beautiful wood counter makes a big style statement in this kitchen.
The dishwasher is conveniently located next to the island sink.
This counter is made from reclaimed antique oak - a wonderful reuse/repurposing result!
