Great kitchen Islands
This kitchen island was designed with door pulls on the sitting side. It's ok if you ask me. Also interesting is the absence of visible countertop support.
Even a small kitchen island can elevate a kitchen's functionality and visual appeal. There is a type of classic charm that be achieved only through balance and simplicity.
The great trim work on the living room side of this peninsula really helps define the the border between the two living spaces.
Another narrow island that helps further organize the space esthetically and functionally.
A distressed island in a non distressed kitchen is a viable solution for the homeowner who wants to bring in a bit of history to the space without going overboard. Choosing a different color and door style suggests the island was acquired separately the way an antique would have been.
Beadboard is not just for cottage or coastal living kitchens. Works perfectly fine in more formal spaces as well.
