Black and white are the two colors that define this futuristic Moscow apartment by Geometrix Design. The kitchen is no exception, featuring a minimalist all-white island complemented by six black chairs which allow it to double as a bar or dining table.
But the shape and the design are elements that always differ. What’s important for a kitchen island with seating is to be a perfect combination of functionality and versatility. This means it needs to have built-in storage spaces, to fit into the room properly, even when it’s expanded and to allow you to use for a variety of activities, such as prepping, having breakfast, working, etc.
If your kitchen is small, consider installing extra-long upper cabinets with molding for extra storage space. Place lighting or greenery along the molding to draw the eyes up. Always install cabinets over the refrigerator; not utilizing this area is a waste of storage space for large or seasonal kitchen items. Finally, install shelves across the backs of the lower kitchen cabinet; this could add up to 4 square feet of storage space.
Kitchen islands are a more recent development and represent a good approach when you want the stove to be accessible from all sides of the room. It is also an idea that allows two or even three people to cook together in the same time. Moreover, the kitchen island’s counter top can function as a surface for serving meals. Choose it wisely, and it will not only come with functional benefits, but with an aesthetic effect that can change the whole appearance of your kitchen for the better!
