5 kitchen island dreams

Does your kitchen have a kitchen island? Oh, please let me know and make me dream. My current kitchen is far too small to even accommodate a small table (not to start on the tiny countertop space I have to cook). I happened upon this bunch of prettier than pretty kitchen islands lately and I had to make a post about them. To make us all dream, that is.

In my dream future home, there is going to be a big bright kitchen with meters of countertop space, cabinetry abundance, ample daylight entering through the large windows (that will overlook to the beautiful countryside- of, course) and stylish lighting fixtures to create a bright and welcoming atmosphere when the sun sets.

Above all these, my dream kitchen will have a large sturdy island in the middle. I'd like it to be made of wood, thick unrefined wooden beams and a sleek marble countertop for contrast. It will have a sink (I've always wanted to do the dishes in the middle of the room), cabinets and shelves, a place to sit and have breakfast and impressive pendant lights right above. A kitchen island feels like a gathering spot, where facilities and fun join the family together.  We used to have a large dining table in the house I grew up in and it definitely was the meeting point of our family. I know a kitchen island can do the same in my future home. So, I'm asking you again; does your kitchen have an island? How is it? Do you prefer it to a kitchen table? I'd love to see how you feel about it!

  3. All kitchens looks beautiful, but I am sorry to say that they are all based on single idea. The only difference is of table and lamps.
