Instead of being supported by two symmetrical blocks, this concrete kitchen island features a completely different approach. One side is extended upwards going all the way up to the ceiling along one of the walls. Given its placement and height, the island perfectly doubles as a dining table.
The kitchen island started out as a purely functional element but, with time, it has also developed a more artistic side, all sorts of unusual and intriguing designs being developed. The following kitchen islands offer more than just some extra counter space. They are extraordinary design elements that raise the bar to a whole new level.
In this case, the island extends and drops to form a dining table. It does that on a different level and we mean that literary. There are no legs or columns to support the island and it appears to float, being attached to the platform. Zoumboulakis Architects designed the home in which the island is found and they also included a few other sculptural details as well.
Remove the seating when needed: If your kitchen island overlooks into a walkway area or adjacent area, the seating often gets in the way of traffic patterns. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have seating. Consider using smaller stools or chairs that can be utilized in other rooms or put in a closet when they aren’t needed. This will help you entertain guests when needed, but allow your kids to run around the house without bumping into chairs as well!
