Kitchen islands serve a number of purposes: They’re a valuable food prep station, serve as a dining space, and provide a home for appliances that don’t fit on the countertop. But by no means does that mean that they can’t be aesthetically pleasing while also serving these other functions.
Decor doesn’t need to be loud or overwhelming to make a stylish statement. Sometimes less is more.
Placing a long, narrow tray that complements the island’s wood tones helps keep the space looking cohesive yet simple.
Or if you would like that extra glowy welcome from the kitchen island, store fresh fruit atop your island, why not make the display extra interesting?
