Build In Extra Kitchen Island Storage

What good is a kitchen island if has little storage? Make your island both beautiful and useful by ensuring you have decent storage space. This beautiful white kitchen has two additional shelves for convenient storage. You’ll be able to streamline your cooking process and clean up your home with this added storage.

Paint Your Kitchen Island

Painting your kitchen island can give your kitchen a refreshing pop of color. If you do paint your island a different color than the rest of your cabinets, make sure to include that color somewhere else in the kitchen to create balance.

Install an Oversized Sink

Oversized sinks are a great feature to add to any kitchen island. Why? Because they allow you to easily wash bulky pots and pans, fill your flower vases with fresh water, or even wash your dog in. Large sinks make a powerful design statement.

This homeowner opted to go for a wide sink to complement the style of the bathtub and accentuate its modern look.

Repurpose an Antique

Do you have a classic antique dresser that has been passed down in the family? Or maybe you are great at finding old furniture pieces that need a little work, but have great potential.

Start by finding an antique dresser in decent condition. Next, add some paint, and install a cool slab to put on top. Finish by adding some awesome hardware. Once you are finished you will find that the old outdated piece that had potential is now the focal point of your kitchen.

Bring in Playful Patterns

You can bring in playful patterns with color or with the materials your use. Find a pretty tile design or use a pretty wallpaper design to cover the base. However, if you use wallpaper make sure to cover it with a sheet of clear acrylic to prevent it from being ruined.

Playful patterns are a great opportunity to personalize your kitchen and make it stand out. Sit down and brainstorm some of your favorite patterns, or maybe even pull out your sketchbook. Draw a few designs and narrow down your choices, then decide on the color and where you want the pattern. After this, you’ll be good to go.
