Current Kitchen Trends:ISLAND

There are many kitchen trends that I’m not sure I understand (for example, the panels over the fridge… what is that? Popular. That’s what that is). But if there’s one “trend” I LOVE to see in a kitchen, it’s an island.

Seriously. Is there anything better than a beautiful frame-less, stained or paintable kitchen with a gorgeous multi functioning Island to complete the look?

Here are a few reasons you should consider adding an island to your home:

  1. Extra Storage

This is probably my favorite reasoning for adding an island to your kitchen. We’ve built islands with secret “snack” drawers for grandbabies, spice racks, places to hold your pots/pans, etc. The opportunities are endless in what can be stored.

  1. Extra seating space

Built at bar height, it’s easy to sneak in an extra seat or five to fit every party need! Also fun to do homework from the bar while mom or dad is busy cooking up and afternoon snack and/or dinner.

  1. Pop of color / modernize

If you’re looking for a fun way to add some color or design to your kitchen, an island is one of the best ways to do it! Without having to change up your whole kitchen, you can add a pop of color or give your kitchen a whole new feel by one added piece of cabinetry.

  1. Design options are endless

There is no end to how you can make your kitchen island work for you. Want to put an extra sink in? Doable. Want to paint it in chalk paint? Done. Want to put your cook range on it to free up more space somewhere else? We got you!


If you or someone you know are looking to add these amazing features in a kitchen, please give us a call! We’d be happy to walk you through a kitchen island that meets your needs.
