Take the opportunity to make your kitchen island mutli-functional because there's lots of options to choose from. Just about any appliance can be built into it including cook tops, under-the-counter refrigerators, sinks, dishwashers and trash compactors. Deep drawers provide a place to store bulky cookware and pullout shelves allow for more easy access. Pick a countertop for your island that matches your other counters or make it stand out by using a contrasting material. Also, your choice of cabinetry and decorative elements can make your island into a real quality item, similar to a fine furniture piece.
Decorating the island with utensils or products goes along the same lines as the appliances. Don't just use any old kitchen products to place on the counter. Things like a spice rack, decorative containers and baskets are a great idea for the kitchen island. Some other items you may consider are napkin or paper towel holders and canisters of dried goods such as sugar and flour. Just be sure that you don't throw everything on the island and use it as a catch all. It should still be neatly organized.
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.
