We are completing a remodel of our kitchen and have almost finished our wall cabinet areas, however we are having difficulty with the design of our island. This project is to design an island for our kitchen.
We purchased a meh wood slab (8' X 24") that we would like to use for the Island counter-top.
under the end of the island near the range, we would like to incorporate at least the following: Spice rack(1 or 2), double trash bin, microwave drawer (24" -- Sharp KB6524PS), maybe a drawer or two below the microwave, storage.
On the end of the island opposite the range we would like seating for 3 or 4 people.
We are partial to a bar height island.
We are open to creatively incorporating granite pieces into the design as long as it does not take away from the flow of the kitchen. The open width of the kitchen is 114".
The wall cabinets are a brown shaker style cabinet with Santa cecilia granite.
for a cabinet color, we are considering a painted off-white island with a chocolate/ mocha colored glaze.
We are in the final stages of completing our kitchen.
Attached are photos of our kitchen progress. I have also attached a photo of an island that I like (White English Style with wood top). I know that this island is too wide for my kitchen, but it is a design idea to start with.
While we are open to ideas regarding the kitchen areas outside of the island, we are happy with the design to date. We would like to also have ideas for lighting over the island.
