Depending on the size of the island, it may be easy to turn it into a sitting area for the family. Add a few stools around the island and clean off the top of it so that the family can sit around and enjoy meals at the table. This is a great alternative if you don't have a kitchen table in the room or if you only have a formal dining table in the house. It offers a convenient space that can be utilized in the best way possible. You can even choose to set the island with placemats if you want to add even more style to the room.
Placing an appliance on the island may not seem like you are decorating but this serves as both a functional way and decorative way to store a great appliance that you may have. Don't just put any old appliance on the counter area. Instead use your nice fancy stainless steel toaster or blender for the décor. If you are going to decorate with an appliance be sure that the island has outlets or there is one accessible from where the island is located in the kitchen.
One of the most popular uses for kitchen islands is as a dining surface. Some islands have two levels, one lower that is nearer to the refrigerator and stove used for meal preparation and the other slightly higher used for dining. This countertop is great for weekday breakfasts, lunches, and after school snacks. Just make sure you purchase a set of kitchen bar stools so your family can make full use of this feature. The beauty of creating your own island design is that you can really incorporate anything you need into your personal island. One thing that experts do not recommend doing is adding a wine rack. Wine should not be placed in an area where the temperature constantly fluctuates, such as the kitchen. You could use the space to store your cookbooks instead.
