The furniture includes vanities raised off the floor, which makes it easier to clean and install. Matching storage cabinets, which can have glass or mirrored doors, offer plenty of room for towels, toiletries and more.

Different styles are available – whether you prefer a more modern floating sink with open shelving, or a more traditional look with wood-mirrors and porcelain sinks, there are options to please everyone.

An Island Oasis In Your Kitchen

The kitchen is one of the main areas in the home where people gather or entertain. A kitchen island can become a centerpiece for social activity.

Many of our kitchen designs include an island, and you may not realize how many options there are available for kitchen islands.

Some things to think about are what you want to use the island for, whether it will be a prep space, an eating area, provide additional storage and if you want a sink or appliances included.

An island needs to go with the flow of the kitchen. In this Connecticut home, this large island has curves to offer more space around it and different levels that allow stools to be tucked in under the counter. It also has an extra sink, which can be used to wash vegetables, fill pots or drain pasta closer to the stove.

This large island has an extra sink, a steamer, plenty of prep space and seating.

You don’t have to have a large kitchen to have an island, for example in this Fifth Avenue apartment, a smaller square island provides an eating and prep area. The stools can provide additional seating, a great space to sit for breakfast or a quick snack.

Islands also reflect the style of the kitchen. This modern kitchen island has a waterfall counter, that flows down one side for a dramatic look. It has two pendant lamps to provide light and stools that tuck under the counter.

This waterfall counter island makes a statement in a modern kitchen.

Think about lighting, whether you want a larger pendant lamp, multiple smaller lamps, or a few medium-size lamps. With multiple smaller lamps, they can hang at different levels, creating an interesting look. Another option is a longer, hanging tray with candles. The style of the lighting is part of your overall look, whether you prefer a more modern or traditional style. The size of the island will impact how many lights you want as well.

This kitchen island has one larger lamp above. Consider lighting options as part of your overall kitchen design plan.

Another consideration is if you want seating at the island, and the height you prefer. The basic choices are table, counter or bar height. This square island has chairs, which may be preferred for younger children or if you use the counter for work and are sitting for longer periods.

Kitchen islands provide storage, with cabinets and drawers, and can include a wine fridge or wine storage area or dishwasher. When designing the island, consider if you want to include these types of items that may need plumbing or electrical connections as part of the design. It is important to work with a designer to make sure this is taken into consideration as part of the planning for contractors.
