Sally -I know you say it's all about the island... but how about that mantle/range hood in the first photo?! Loving the silver one with all the drawers ~ I love my kitchen drawers!
That third image is one of my all time favorite kitchens...island and all!
Can't imagine not having an island in a kitchen of mine now...but one thing I really don't like is when stove tops are placed on islands!! Defeats the whole purpose, in my mind!Janell
Sally,I wish I had room for an island would love it!!Really enjoy looking at all of the unique lighting fixtures!KarenaArt by Karena
No island in my kitchen but a great big counter space breakfast bar so I have an island that is attached to the wall so would that make it an penninsula?? Hehe
Inlove when an island is a working island. Eating there is convenient but I like tables - something about sitting down to eat At the table, away from other distractions and the hustle and bustle of kitchen prep, as a family just seems right to me. I am with sue, love image 3. But I do want to reach in and lower the pendants...
I love this because I don't know what I'd do without my island. It's clean-up (my sink is here), prep station and kids having a snack perch! Now that's multi-tasking!
Marija! You are so right! They stick out like a sore thumb now that you mention it. Isn't it interesting what different people see?
It sure is the island is so important most family end up spending time here~
