Island Living – The Kitchen’s Functional Powerhouse

We recently posted some “Before and After” pictures of a standard builder’s kitchen that we remodeled by removing the original peninsula/breakfast bar and adding a large island, and the response was overwhelming! So many of you commented and sent messages expressing that you have kitchens similar to the “Before” picture and would love to do the same type of remodel in your home, and we completely understand why. By replacing the wall/peninsula/cabinets with one large island between your kitchen and the living space beyond, the entire flow and feel of your home is transformed. The two rooms become an open space that is ideal for everyday family life as well as entertaining. KBF can design your kitchen to include a custom island to fit your lifestyle and needs with a limitless combination of cabinets, drawers, shelving, and specialty storage. Islands can also house appliances such as dishwashers, wine refrigerators and microwaves, as well as both full kitchen and/or prep sinks. Moreover, the expanse of counter space that is available on an island cannot be beat for working and entertaining. A large island also adds seating for guests, and provides the perfect spot for a buffet. The slideshow below shows some of KBF’s recent kitchen remodels where we designed large functional islands to unite our clients’ kitchens with their living spaces beyond.
