More than ever the kitchen island has become the gathering place for entertaining guests while allowing the host to prepare a healthy meal
(or some tasty cookies!) By providing a variety of roles such as extra work space and the added bonus of hidden seating under the counter, it has become a welcome addition. The rustic farmhouse-style island has been a hot trend and is still going strong in this new year.
One key point to consider is function.
Islands have to work to make them earn their space. Storage, easy access, seating and height are all things to keep in mind when choosing which one is right for you.
For one that has charm and functionality, the rustic over sized island made from hand selected solid wood, skillfully cut and stained in a variety of popular finishes. Offering a distinctive look with a double sliding barn door on one side which hides a storage shelf and two drawers. On the other side of the counter top is a compartment with four pull out stools for extra seating. (Shown Above)
When kitchen space is at a premium, smaller islands can still be functional while adding that rustic element for a warm touch. Make the most of your limited space while providing additional prep space and seating with a long slender rustic island. One that has drop leafs on each side as well as four hidden stools along the middle.
With a new rustic island, it will be sure to become a stylish and functional centerpiece of your home!
