Pet Feeding Station Are you wondering where to place your pet’s feeding bowls and kibbles? This is the perfect solution! One end of your kitchen island is ideal for a pet feeding station. Bowls fixed at the bottom and drawers for the food at the top. Smooth Curve When you think you can abide with the stark minimalism of modern designs, inject a healthy dose of drama into your kitchen with this curved island. Keep the rest simple to get the balance of things.
Modern kitchen islands are often designed to naturally fit into the room and its interior design. They match or complement the cabinetry or storage units and come as an accessory or an accent piece designed to complete the space. This design and the one featured above share the same design and strategy. They’re built into the cabinet unit and extend from between the storage compartments. As you can see, the island can either incorporate features such as a sink and a stove top or can simply be used as a counter space.
Use the space above Take advantage of being able to use the space above the island by adding suspended storage, where you can display a matching pan collection or your best stemware. You can also experiment with lighting elements, or if you’ve decided to install a stovetop with overhead venting you can use the space for the range hood. Install a Waterfall IslandPainted in a Benjamin Moore white, the kitchen of a Nova Scotia home designed by Alexander Gorlin is centered by an island clad in Caesarstone; the stools are by Gus Modern.
Get more storage In addition to creating more counter space, an island is also a way to add more storage and avoid kitchen clutter by using drawers, cupboards and shelves. This is beneficial especially if appliances take up a lot of cabinet room, or if you’re looking for a unique way to showcase certain items by using open shelving. Store dishes and pots within reach or keep less frequently used appliances out of the way. Another option is to use open shelving to display cookbooks or other items.
