The island is the element which usually separates an open kitchen concept from the dining or living spaces. A large kitchen island such as the one used here by Cortney Bishop can also serve as a bar, expanding the social area beyond the lounge spaces. The fact that the island had an exposed wood base also allows it to stand out and separate itself from the rest of the kitchen.

Other creative options to revamp your kitchen include displaying personal decorative items like cookbooks and photos or opening up the space by knocking down a wall or two. Another cheap way to make a noticeable difference is to switch out the hardware on drawers and cabinets, like changing out old tarnished pulls and knocks with modern brass fixtures.
