For this week’s Friday Inspiration, we’re sharing a roundup of rustic and industrial kitchen islands that are sure to inspire.

Friday Inspiration: Kitchen Islands

There is something about a kitchen island that just screams, “Gather around me, drink and be merry.” I don’t know what it is about them, but in my family, that is where everyone gravitates. At all our get-togethers, you can find random baked goods, snacks and drink mixers scattered across the surface and at least three or four people milling about.

They’re also a catch-all for those papers, keys, groceries and any other thing that doesn’t have a home. Or, maybe it does, but like people, those items seem to gravitate towards the island.

Which brings me to the topic for this week’s Friday Inspiration – The Kitchen Island. I’ve rounded up some amazing and unique islands to hopefully spur your creativity. Not only are these islands perfect for those family/friend gatherings, but they also offer a little twist to the traditional style. Enjoy!


All out best,

    I love the kitchen islands with the table and benches build in! They are all GORGEOUS!

      I like that style too – it’s kind of a cross between a breakfast nook and an island. And yes, they’re all wonderful! 🙂

    Too many choices, but I go for the rustic look which is what I think a house on a lake should look like. Only my opinion though.

    • Kelly

      Way too many choices! Who knew there were so many island styles to choose from? I agree that the style should be more rustic on a lake – we’ve got to maintain our north country style 🙂
