Kitchen Island Ideas

A quick confession: we love all our kitchen cabinets, but if we had to pick a favorite spot in the heart of the home, it’s all about the island. There’s just no denying that this free-floating prep-and-storage superhero is the centerpoint of any functional family kitchen—quite literally, since it’s smack-in-the-middle of the action. (And that goes double for when you’re hosting houseguests—ever notice that cocktail parties always seem to gravitate toward the island, no matter what?)

Islands might be a relatively new fixture in the scheme of kitchen design, but they’ve (rightly) earned their place in the pantheon. And while the islands of the past may have been carbon-copies of the cabinets on the perimeter of the space, this new class of islands isn’t shy about standing out. From contrasting countertops to bold and colorful cabinets to styles that look more like a treasured piece of heirloom furniture than something you’d find in the millwork aisle of your local hardware store, we’re head-over-heels for these chic, show-offy island styles.

Click through to see our favorite showstopping islands (and pick up a few tips for your next home remodel, too).
