Modern Kitchen Island


Kitchens with an open plan living room, like this design on Etsy, should choose a design that seamlessly goes together with the surrounding decor. We love this ultra-modern and contemporary kitchen island/dining idea in a beautiful black and copper colour scheme that plays into the space with earthly colours with a modern twist. The large surface space on this breakfast bar means that you can transform it into a kitchen island workspace easily as a two-in-one kitchen feature.

Easily prepare your meals and store all your kitchen essentials on this gorgeous cottage-inspired kitchen Island from Cotswold Co. If you’ve got an open kitchen space with room for a kitchen island, this is ideal as it’s not oversized and it features shelves and drawers for extra storage. Plus, the beautiful cream and wood colour means that you can add this to just about any kitchen colour scheme without looking out of place.

Stainless Steel Kitchen Island


This show-stopping Kitchen Island from Wayfair is the perfect storage solution in your kitchen. We love the stainless steel work surface that allows you to prepare food, and the built-in wine rack for an instant bottle to glass top up whilst you cook. The sliding doors and two upper drawers are great for additional storage in your kitchen too!

Blue Kitchen Island


Large kitchens need large kitchen islands to help fill the space and make it homely. This beautiful pastel blue kitchen island from Etsy has plenty of storage on the front with 6 drawers – 4 of which are deep drawers for the ultimate storage savvy chef! The back of this kitchen island is hollowed out to serve as a kitchen bar for dining space in your kitchen and we particularly love the rail feature on the side for tea towels and plant potters to hang.

Small Kitchen Island


At Style Your Sanctuary, we love home decor that’s eco-friendly and this beautiful kitchen island from Graham and Green is handcrafted from recycled pine wood. We love the beautiful pinewood against the limestone top for a homely countryside kitchen look. The double shelf and side tea towel rail are perfect for storing your food prep and utensils for an easily accessible kitchen space.
