Kitchen Island Design Ideas

The layout of this traditional-style kitchen perfectly accomodates a center kitchen island. And this particular kitchen island offers some wonderful storage and display ideas for wine bottles as well as a beautiful, large granite countertop for extra work space.

This over-sized kitchen island is center stage and rightfully so. Wood cabinetry with gorgeous architectural details and smooth granite countertops match the other cabinets in the kitchen. The corners of the island are carved out to allow access to the central cooktop area and an offset prep sink increases the island's funtionality. Highlighting the island is a dramatic chandelier.

Seating for four, pendant lighting, a prep sink, and an enormous marble countertop - this kitchen island has it all. The rounded design on the dining side is a brilliant idea allowing for conversation between individuals sitting at the island.

It's all horizontal lines and shiny stainless steel for this modern kitchen. The kitchen island is no exception with its straight edges and smooth surfaces. The charcoal grey finish on the island relates well to the white cabinets and walls of the kitchen, as well as the frosted glass panels covering the built-in shelves.

This black kitchen island trimmed in stainless steel really stands out in contrast to the backdrop of white and pale blue. It is a strong element in an otherwise airy space. The top of the island is lit by a unique hanging fixture that mimics the island's rectangular shape.

A kitchen island with traditional french appeal. It provides open storage for displaying baskets and bins. The warm wood butcher block top serves as an additional work space, serving area and spot for casual dining.

A contemporary kitchen island for a contemporary kitchen. In keeping with that modern aesthetic, this island is covered in highly reflective material both on the sides and the countertop. The sleek design blends in with the clean lines of the rest of the kitchen.

A centralized cooking area with medieval styling. The main purpose of this island is cooking with a little storage provided by way of an overhead shelf for holding extra pots and pans and hanging cooking utensils.
