Many islands double as eat-in bars. The area where you eat can be the same height as the island's main counter, though many islands have an eating area that's higher than the work space, where you can use bar-height stools. This not only breaks up the dimensions of the room, it allows you to hide a variety of sins below the eating area (a sink full of dishes, anyone?) or serve from there when having a party.
Styles and colors are unlimited, too. You can match your kitchen island table to the rest of the cabinetry or make it stand out by choosing a different color than the rest of the woodwork. This is a good place to expand on or play off of your home's style. Look for something that complements your look, either by matching it exactly or by adding to it. A farm-style island in a modern kitchen is an exciting juxtaposition, just as a cottagey banquette adds to a cozy cottage kitchen.
Kitchens that boast an antique design concept are fun to work with when choosing a kitchen island. Whether your kitchen space is an ode to all things beautiful of past eras, or you are simply seeking to add a few antique design elements, there is a way to give any kitchen island a bit of old-fashioned flavor.
