While a kitchen island can certainly serve its purpose as an additional spot for storage or food preparation, some pieces are also intended to be a place for gathering friends and family. In fact, many kitchen island tables shirk their typical duties in favor of diner-style seating and a casual dining environment.
Multiple counter heights increase an island's functionality. In addition to the preparation area height, they might include lower surfaces for baking and chopping, and higher surfaces for eating up and away from the preparation area.
Complement your vintage kitchen island with a variety of textured surfaces, like an exposed-brick backsplash or brick-pattern floors. Colorful retro appliances are also back in vogue—such as 50s-inspired refrigerators available in a wide range of shades from pastel green to cherry red and buttercup yellow.
