If repurposed items are available to you, then you might want to consider constructing a kitchen island from old barn doors and topped with a glossy pine counter. Dressers and desks that have been given a subtle shabby chic look can also work well in these rustic kitchen island designs.
Kitchen islands with seating also add to the kitchen′s overall functionality—not to mention its aesthetic appeal.
Extra storage space is another feature that is often included with pre-designed stationary islands. A set of drawers, small side shelves and two to four cabinets are typical for these types of islands. Some stationary islands also include unique features, like a drop leaf breakfast bar or knife block that attaches to the end of the island.
Think of the word "rustic" and it' s hard not to envision a gorgeous woodland with sprawling trees and vibrant nature. The same goes for a rustic kitchen island – while the design is often simplistic, the end result is a beautiful and functional piece.
