Movable kitchen islands offer a variety of conveniences, such as towel, cup or spice racks, drop-leafs, wine racks or even a breakfast bar with room for seating.
If you are seeking a classic French-style kitchen, then consider a kitchen island that boasts simple, black cabinetry paired with a marble or granite countertop. The effect will be noteworthy, but perfectly understated.
If your kitchen design features exposed brick walls, wood-lined vaulted ceilings and simple white cabinetry, then you may want to consider a kitchen island that has a simple granite or marble countertop, but is lined with reclaimed wood shelving and a kick space under the island where bar stools will be placed. The overall effect of these materials is warm and inviting.
Pre-designed freestanding kitchen islands often incorporate helpful features, such as a rod for hanging towels or metal hooks to hang small pots. Of course, the most valuable aspect of a freestanding kitchen island is that it is not a permanent fixture in a kitchen and can be easily moved.
