A kitchen island adds both a focal point and functionality to a space. When creating an island, many elements go into consideration. The aesthetics of the island are extremely important, as the eye will be directed toward the center of the kitchen space. The finish, textures, and character must compliment the cabinetry, flooring, and over all feel of the space. The materials should be strong, sturdy, and add character and beauty to the room. And of course, the island should be functional! The island adds additional counter space, while oftentimes adding shelving or cabinet space as well. It takes both skill and eye for detail to create such a masterpiece!
Today, let’s take a look at a beautiful island created by Tom W., a cabinetmaker in Kentucky. Tom created a kitchen island using a very large (and very heavy) piece of marble. For support, Tom chose the Osborne Massive Islander Island Leg (Part #1452), a classic island post style. The simple, yet stylish turnings of the legs add a subtle detail that compliments the rest of the design. The legs are finished a light gray to match the kitchen island. As you can see, the island contains additional cabinets and even a space for the microwave! It is a great use of space, and a perfect focal point for the room. Amazing work Tom!
