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.
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.
