Floating Island Kitchen

Is there an open spot where an island can store when not in use? Design a kitchen island that will fit in the dimensions of the opening. Better yet, if you’re designing a kitchen, include one cabinet piece that can roll out and be used as an island or extra counter space in a different spot.

These days cooking is a spectator sport, and this island provides a perfect stage. Long, elegant and designed with bar seating and a built-in cooktop, the island is an inviting centerpiece for guests to gather around. A blazing hearth backdrop only adds to the congeniality of the setting. It takes a big kitchen with an abundance of natural light to pull off such a big island. But the weightiness of this gracious piece of furniture is offset by the light-colored cabinetry above and clever peripheral lighting. Photo Credit: George Lambros

The shape of an island kitchen can determine a room’s traffic flow. In this case, an organic oval slab resting on a traditional wood cabinet gently and gracefully guides the kitchen traffic in a circular motion. The island, nevertheless, is the imposing hub of this kitchen. Combining modern sensibilities with older style cabinetry, it is a large, clean surface suitable for a quick bite or a complicated dinner preparation. Photo Credit: Whirlpool

Sleek, ultramodern and seemingly floating on its metal cylindrical legs, this island is a work of art for the contemporary industrial design set. It looks like it was conjured up in an iPod designer’s lab for a chic, 21st-century kitchen — functional elegance. Not only does it beckon you to touch its clean, smooth surface, but it handily incorporates appliances, a bar sink and storage drawers. Photo Credit: Fisher & Paykel

Regardless of the island you use, if you need the island to be mobile, adding high quality wheels to one is an easy upgrade. Choose high density polyurethane wheels that have a locking mechanism that keeps the island from moving.

Perfect for an active, all-American family, the kitchen island doubles as breakfast table and workspace. The simple butcher-block surface is made for casual living and is supported by sturdy legs that mirror the home’s updated Craftsman design. Though this is an island that’s built to be brawny, the light color understates its heft. Photo Credit: JAS Design Build

The unique feature of this sturdy and versatile island is its thick wooden top. That’s no ordinary butcher block. JAS Design Build, a Seattle-based firm known for its innovative style, built that countertop out of a reclaimed bowling alley lane. The island is as muscular as a workbench while stylistically matching the clean, straight lines of the wall shelves and cabinets. It is painted green to provide a visual connection with the dining room. The choice of lighting fixtures also establishes a room-to-room continuity. Photo Credit: JAS Design Build

For wine aficionados, a kitchen island is a convenient spot to store bottles and spare yourself the hassle of finding room in the refrigerator. Wine refrigerators come in a variety of sizes and finishes and can be hidden behind cabinetry, though this one is an architecturally interesting addition to the kitchen.

They pulled out all the stops for this gracious French-country kitchen. The modern accoutrements are the embedded stove and appliances, but the rest is Old World, ranging from the fanciful woodwork to the glass cabinet windows that match the panes of the kitchen windows. A perfect work triangle is created and cooking utensils are all within arm’s reach. The giant window over the sink pours an abundance of natural light over the shoulder of the chef toiling away at the island’s stovetop. Photo Credit: Brookstone Cabinets

This eclectic and creative conversation piece is the work of Seattle architecture firm Graham Baba. The island, assembled from found objects and topped with a slab of wood, was designed as an accoutrement for a rustic-modern kitchen, providing flashes of color and a Mondrian-like arrangement that never fails to elicit comments.

For the most use, select one that has a towel bar for hooks and textiles and open shelving below. Locking wheels are helpful if you plan on moving your island often, although restaurant grade work tables are often lightweight enough to move without needing wheels.

If you find a good kitchen counter that is missing an overhang or open side, you can always add a larger, new top to your find. Make sure the new top is large enough to allow at least a 6” ledge on one side and that the new top is durable enough to withstand kitchen use.
