We’re just finishing a full kitchen reno, and while I’m very happy with our basic rectangle island, I definitely would have sketched a design like #24, if I’d have thought of it.

Admittedly, no.2 on the list above gives the space a lot of dynamics. It is interesting how shapes can affect the character of the space.

#2 - The island's angles are a nice design element, I wonder if the client would have been open to incorporating angles into the wall cabinetry as a way to tie the wall cabinets and island together an enhance the over all visual experience.


#7 - Nicely designed, incorporating the architectural design elements (beams) into the cabinetry, well done


#11 - Nice island shape adds visual interest. The color of the wall cabinet's niches and the bar stools work together. just a thought, if the client would have approved, adding slight angles to the wall cabinetry just pull the cabinetry and island's shapes visually together.

Still a very nice visual design!


#16 - Nicely done, I know I'm a picky designer, however, from another design perspective it would have been interesting to see the curvature design elements incorporated into the wall cabinetry just to pull them visually together.


#18 - Tying the hood's texture into the island's front, pulls them together.


#20 - Nicely balanced, I wonder if the client would have been open to adding the island's texture to the upper cabinets or adding a soft curve to the hood's front to complement the island's top?


#22 - Nice visual designed
