Kitchen islands make a stunning feature in solid wood kitchens – but don’t just take our word for it! Seeing is believing – as they say – and as such this week we would like to share some beautiful and inspiring images of island units with you (if you’re not already planning a kitchen makeover, you may well be after taking a look at the fabulous designs below…!).
This stunning wooden kitchen island combines a beautiful oak worktop with two radius corners, oak cabinetry and painted tongue and groove end panels to form a functional work space with a built-in breakfast bar.
Whilst this kitchen island unit is sizeable, the use of pale Hardwick White by Farrow & Ball for the cabinet frontals creates a light, airy vibe that works wonderfully well alongside the elegant wooden flooring.
Okay, we admit it: we cheated a little because this island isn’t entirely detached. However, this is a splendid example of designing a kitchen island to suit the available space. Whilst a ‘full’ kitchen island would have been unrealistic in a room of these proportions, this extra-wide work surface is perfect for providing a much-needed space for baking en masse and storing all those recipe books!
This charming kitchen island can be found at our flagship showroom in Quedgeley. With Shaker cabinetry painted in Farrow & Ball’s Cord, luxurious full stave oak worktops with radius corners and an end grain butchers block made from walnut and maple, this island would make an outstanding addition to any kitchen.
This traditional kitchen island incorporates classic features such as ornate lacquered pilasters, delightful wicker baskets, Traditional cabinet frontals and a large section of solid oak worktop. Discover this superb kitchen component – and many others – at our Quedgeley showroom.
The bold colour choice for this kitchen island really transforms it into a stunning feature. Adjacent to cabinetry with frontals painted in a softer hue – such as Farrow & Ball’s Shaded White or Hardwick White – statement island units like this can take the spotlight without looking too stark. A stylish kitchen that is ideal for both cooking and entertaining.
Lavish full stave Prime Oak worktops are only equalled in elegance by the beautiful pairing of Clunch and Vert De Terre on the cabinets in this kitchen. Soft green Vert De Terre provides a stunning accent colour for this kitchen island, and adds depth to a predominantly cream colour palette.
Combining bright accessories with cabinet frontals in Blue Ground and All White by Farrow & Ball ensures that this kitchen exudes plenty of retro charm. The addition of a white countertop produces a quirky, patriotic effect (the colour scheme is reminiscent of the Union Jack flag!), whilst the wooden work surface on the sideboard brings warmth to the kitchen as a whole.
