I love how your table work turned out :) There is nothing better than decorate your house with things you have done yourself. This beautiful open kitchen by architect, Steve Giannetti features a large island with a sleek custom sink and warm wooden countertop. Interior design blog, Things That Inspired recently posted an excellent article on Kitchen Sinks and my heart started racing when I saw this kitchen.
In this stunning {and large} kitchen, the dark stained center island stands out from the soft sage green perimeter cabinetry.
The former editor in chief of Food & Wine magazine, Carole Lalli designed this large island topped with butcher-block and marble in her Connecticut kitchen. This gourmet kitchen in Ted Turner’s private desert lodge on Armendaris Ranch sits on his 350,000-acre wild animal preserve along the Fra Cristobal Mountains.
This highly functional kitchen by Atlanta-based designer, Jo Rabaut is stunning and recently won Atlanta Homes Magazine’s 2010 Kitchen of the Year Contest.
These are over the top beautiful but I have to say that Steve Giannetti's is my favorite, he is incredible.
That being said, I do love the look of an island that's different than the other cabinetry in a kitchen.
Oh, I love the kitchen island with the zinc countertop…too bad my entire kitchen is as big as the islands! I am SO excited about the plan that my kitchen designer came up with – and a great kitchen island is the central feature!
One reader recommended that I really think about how I want to use my island before committing to a design, or committing to what will be on the island (nothing, a cooktop, a sink, a prep sink, etc). Someone else mentioned the importance of the stone you pick = if you have a big island, you will more than likely have a seam. I love my new island – we placed the microwave drawer in it in addition to wine storage and cookbook storage.


I did not use the thick legs (although I LOVE them) because they were $100 EACH and at that price I would rather just buy a kitchen table. Jamielyn aspires to reach women, get their creative juices flowing, and to genuinely inspire. It’s where guests mingle, family meetings are held, and meals are prepared and enjoyed.
Designer and architect, William Hefner created it with a stunning island topped in what is thought to be zinc. The dark CaesarStone countertop and warm wood saddle stools contrast beautifully with the white colored island. Laura Hunt Design created this space featured in Architectural Digest and inspired by historic kitchens of Spanish colonial house in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
The color palette of warm walnut ?oors, soft vanilla cabinetry and pale aqua walls gives this busy room a calming feeling.
I also want a place that has bar stool seating for 3 – enough for my 3 kids (my current island has space for 2, which causes issues!).
When she’s not creating, Jamielyn loves to chase her two little monkeys and snuggle up on the couch with her man. I can’t believe how well the benches match the table, I thought you made them to match and had to take a second look when I saw you bought them, awesome job.
I just love how the gray surface plays off the two light pendants, dark gray upholstered stools and White Carrara Marble tiled backsplash. Coordinating with the room’s other cabinets, both islands are painted white and are topped with white marble. The tiled center island offers sitting for two {great rush seat stools}, a beverage refrigerator {or two, depending what is hiding behind the wood panel} and of course additional space for food preparation. This sleek modern centerpiece is topped with a white countertop {marble?}, under mounted sink and provides numerous drawers for much needed storage. There's also enough room to sit on stools on the other side and it also provides lots of storage. I also want an island that is big enough for my middle child to do homework, as this is her preferred place for studies!


Hefner places a small prep sink in the corner of the island {opposite a main sink on the other side of the room}.
The heavy steel pendant hangs off center over the island and makes me wonder if there is a matching pendant to balance the look not visible in the image.
Providing task lighting and a pop of color, Miller hangs two pairs of copper pendants with blue gingham prints above each work area. The island’s dark soapstone countertop focuses our attention and provides a tactile surface for food prep. The glass-front kitchen cabinets would have been perfect for this post.I love kitchen islands. We do have a wide peninsula that serves the same purpose as an island, providing extra counter and storage space. See the exact formula below. Oh and the chandelier is from Pottery Barn and the benches are from Walmart. In fact, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), islands are one of the most popular kitchen design features among today’s consumers.
The islands not only give Miller loads of prep space, but provide seating areas at kitchen dinner parties. A custom double trough sink housed in the island also makes food preparation more efficient. After not finding the look I wanted, I knew I would either have to refinish a piece or build something. A table {on wheels} is placed at one end and can be easily moved to serve as an additional workstation or buffet. The image via Traditional Home and photo credit Michael Garland, was first spotted it on Things That Inspire. Kitchen islands can have the same design as the main counter and cabinets or it can have a look all its own.
