Use an accent kitchen island to make your kitchen stand out

You may have already considered an island for its usefulness. Who doesn’t want more storage, preparation and seating in the kitchen? But even if you already have all those in swords (how lucky!), Don’t overlook this potentially powerful design element. Here are four ways you can use a decorative kitchen island to transform your kitchen space.

You may have already considered an island for its usefulness. Who doesn’t want more storage, preparation and seating in the kitchen? But even if you already have all those in swords (how lucky!), Don’t overlook this potentially powerful design element. Here are four ways you can use a decorative kitchen island to transform your kitchen space.

Draw the eye, draw people

One of the main reasons why people add an island is to create seats in the kitchen. That extra seat is a clutch when guests are entertained, but it is also useful when cooking as a family or just want to chat in an informal setting. Creating a kitchen island with a striking accent ensures that this space is used. When you choose to do something visually interesting with your island, such as wrapping it in marble or painting it with a saturated hue, you attract attention. And when people notice your kitchen island, they will also notice the available seats. The correct accent island may call, “Raise a chair!”

Add an accent color

The kitchen can be a risky place to add bold colors. If you paint all your cabinets in an intense tone or opt for a colorful countertop, you will stay with it. And, because your kitchen is a key factor in the resale value of your home, it could be hurt in the future. But does that mean you have to choose boring neutrals exclusively? Absolutely not! The island of your kitchen is an excellent low level place to play with color.

Hanging accent lighting on your island helps define it as a key part of the room design and helps anchor it, no matter how bold the color you choose. Bright orange? Why not!

Add an architectural element

The components that make up a kitchen are generally quite cut and dry. You have the sink, cabinets, countertops and appliances. There is no room for much more, is there? When you add an accent island, you can have fun with the space. It is the perfect opportunity to add an architectural element that does not occupy any of the precious square feet in your kitchen. Maximize your functional cooking space while adding a surprise factor when choosing an interesting kitchen island.

You can go big, like on the island shown above, or reduce, depending on what you want to add to your kitchen. Even a little molding around your island can help you feel structured and lend something more to your kitchen space.
