A kitchen island can instantly make your space more functional. Island styles can include sinks, stove tops, bars and more. The sky’s the limit! The idea is to choose a kitchen island style that fits the overall design of your space. When choosing the perfect island you have to think about countertop surfaces, colors, and accessories. We can help you look at all of the different options and fit the right match for you in our kitchen design center or in your own home!


Kitchen Island Styles

If your kitchen has a modern design, you’ll want cool and dark surfaces for your kitchen island. Choose marble or granite countertops paired with cherry wood cabinets and stainless steel fixtures. Also in contemporary kitchens, a simple countertop paired with a white or bold-hued set of cabinets will do the trick!


If you have a vintage or eclectic feel in your kitchen, you’ll want to choose an island style that reflects your affection for antique items. Try an antique freestanding buffet with an ivory countertop. You can also try a piece of furniture, such as an antique dresser, that can be repurposed into an island. This a unique take on a kitchen island style and it will be sure to make heads turn. It will make your home stand out and be a feature that no one else has or can recreate.


When choosing a kitchen island style, it’s important to consider the top reasons for why you are adding it to your kitchen space. If you are seeking additional space for food preparation, then you’ll definitely want to include a sink. If you’re looking for more seating, you’ll want to choose a design that has two sides to incorporate a breakfast bar.
