Our island story

Kitchen islands maximise usable floor space and act as both a visual anchor in the room and help increase functionality and efficiency. They can provide additional work surface and create extra storage. By adding seating into the design, an island becomes the social hub of the room. They are one of the most desired additions to a home with over 70% of buyers* having an island on their wish list.

Incorporating sinks, drawer fridges, dishwasher or stove tops into an island is one way to spread the workflow throughout the kitchen. If space lacks a proper dining table or you are looking to create more casual bar-seating, adding low-profile seating to the island or a breakfast bar with a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath is more social for both diners and the cook. Built-in bookcases, plate racks and open shelving can be incorporated for stealthy storage to keep you organized.

Typical brief

“We want to add practical, hardwearing storage and extra seating in our kitchen and like the kitchen island you have on display in the showroom. Can you make one for me?”

The result

The heart of the home transformed with the clean-lined modern country charm of a striking and practical Island.

Creating the look

Painting an oversized island in a contrasting darker colour to the rest of the custom cabinetry can transform a room. Simple stools perfectly compliment a minimalist island. Create contrast by using a different material or color for the island counters than you did in the rest of the room. Choose wooden top island for a natural aesthetic and the placement of glass pendant lights above a central island won’t block the view or the light.

Recommended appliances

Wireless surface charger: install a wireless charging transmitter within your island work surface and enjoy the convenience of being able to charge smartphones and tablets without being tethered or having the hassle of finding a power point.
