Round Kitchen Island
Kitchen with Marble Island
A small, round custom island provides a handy space for prepping meals, without taking up a large footprint in a U-shaped kitchen. The open base also helps the space feel bright and open.
Think outside the box with a round kitchen island that's as charming as it is unexpected. But don't let the word "round" fool you, though.
Swap traditional pendants for commercial-grade fixtures for a look that's au courant. Contrasted with classic Italian marble and traditional cabinetry, industrial lighting makes a trendy statement. Design by HGTV fan Rethink Design.
Don't Forget the Ceiling
This high-end kitchen has all the bells and whistles including a traditional coffered ceiling. Depending on your carpentry skills, this is either a do-it-yourself or hire-a-pro upgrade. Either way, it's a high-impact update that will take your kitchen to a new level of sophistication. Design by HGTV fan stiles.
Perfect the Pantry
Make food storage stylish with trendy, numbered bins and natural baskets filled with similiar items. Fill one basket with dry goods for baking so you can easily round up brownie, cake or cookie ingredients in a snap.
Rounded kitchen island shapes include everything from oval-, U-shaped and half-moon islands to hybrid shapes that look more like a keyhole—with one square end and one round end, perfect for accommodating as many as four seats.
Allow your imagination take shape, literally, and ask the advice of a design professional, who can best relay how a curved island will round out your space.
Some homeowners appreciate the "Top Chef" appeal that a rounded island creates when the island wraps around the prep space. The cook takes center stage while diners or guests look on from their counter-height seating for a chef's table experience.
Homeowners looking to make a statement with their kitchen island might also consider employing not one but two kitchen islands—one round and one square—to further add interest to the space.
