Trends in Kitchen Islands

Posted On: January 20, 2016

Working in the bathroom and kitchen remodeling industry, we see the steady increase in projects that indicate that a trend is here to stay. Sometimes trend is used as a bad word, but trends frequently turn into two words you love to hear from guests—“classic” and “timeless.” Here we’re exploring two trends that have merit and are, indeed, going to be sticking around: wooden countertops on your kitchen island and two-tiered islands.

Although we have given this project a rating of 10 in all areas, we would like to give our thanks…

Wooden Countertops

Wooden countertops echo a return to earlier days when granite and stone countertops weren’t practical, even for very wealthy homes. They are an exquisite choice for an island countertop, with an array of wood types to choose from so you can find the perfect choice for your kitchen.

Wooden countertops provide both a centerpiece for your kitchen that is still an aspect of your kitchen that can be used every day. Benefits of choosing wooden counters include:

  • Minimal upkeep
  • Warmer to the touch than stone
  • Wide variety of choice in color
  • Repairable with steel wool
  • Eco-friendly choices available like reclaimed wood
  • Beautiful countertop patterns
  • And more!

Two-Tiered Island Countertops

Sometimes one level of countertop just isn’t enough space for your kitchen island. You may need more appropriate height levels for your family members or you may require more space so that some people can use the island to cook while others use the space to eat. Two-tiered islands are ideal for accomplishing all of your family’s needs!

Here are a few reasons why you should choose a two-tiered island:

  • Optimize your space
  • Allow for shared family time
  • Create seating options

Two tiered islands create visual interest in your kitchen while also allowing your daily activities to function in a specialized way. By creating one space designated for cooking and another for eating, two-tiered islands let your kitchen run more smoothly.
