It's a good way to acquire heirloom pieces that can be passed down in your family for generations to come. These pieces have stood the test of time, are sturdy and make beautiful—as well as useful—investment pieces. Antique kitchen chairs are most often constructed of solid wood and are unpainted, although you may find some antique chairs made of wrought iron.
There should be 3'4" to 3'6" inches of space between the island and the outside edge of cabinets. To function ideally as a preparation area, an island should have all the tools needed, especially a sink, a stove and secondary appliances like warming or refrigerator drawers.
To make the island look different than the cabinetry and add color and interest, try using a different wood or the same wood with a different finish or color. Also use a different material for the island counter top. You might even try using two different materials for the counters, especially if the island has dual-height counters. Adding legs or feet makes the island look more like a piece of furniture, a popular trend for today's kitchens. Stone, wood and steel are ideal choices for island countertops.
