If the kitchen is the heart of the home, the center island is the soul. It’s a place where family and friends collect to share stories, coffee, and homemade meals. Today’s kitchen islands are becoming grander, more unique, and more functional than ever before. If you’re ready to transform your Ellicott City, Clarksville, Glenwood, or Fulton kitchen into a personal oasis, consider implementing one of the following kitchen island designs into your remodel.
Kitchen islands originally served as functional pieces of furniture where homeowners could prepare meals. In modern kitchens, the island is a breakfast nook, a dining room table, and more. Comfortable seating is a must for today’s kitchen islands, and it’s important that the seating area fit seamlessly with the design. Adding a defined seating area to a kitchen island allows homeowners to store stools away after each use. Not only does this create more space in the kitchen, but it also minimizes clutter. Turned posts at the end of a countertop extension allow Howard County homeowners to experiment with contemporary or traditional styles in the kitchen.
A waterfall countertop wraps around the sides of the island, creating a clean, fluid centerpiece. Typical of waterfall countertop designs, the seating appears on one side and the dishwasher, storage, and sink appear on the other. This design allows homeowners the ability to entertain with ease, all while maintaining a minimalist aesthetic.
Dura Supreme created Island endcaps with customizable drawer configurations to appeal to any kitchen style. The endcaps feature shelves and posts to define the kitchen island seating and provide a stylish alternative to traditional storage. The Island Endcaps by Dura Supreme are perfect for homeowners looking to capitalize on kitchen storage without sacrificing square footage. The best part about island endcaps is that they can be customized to fit any Howard County kitchen!
