Kitchen Islands

Kitchen Island Cabinetry

Often the centerpiece of activity, an island can be as simple as a small table or an elaborate multi-level surface with its own sink, dishwasher and seating for the entire family.  Islands can be created in all shapes and sizes by combining cabinetry to create additional storage and counter space.  An island can help to separate the kitchen space from the living space within an open floor plan, so that there are clear work zones for the cook and the family or guests. 

ISLAND TABLES

A freestanding island table is the perfect venue to create a unique furniture-like centerpiece for your kitchen.  Select a daring color combination or wood species to contrast with the kitchen cabinetry and embellish it with decorative hardware that is truly singular. 

Your Dura Supreme kitchen designer will guide you through the selection process to choose your drawer configuration, end treatment, back treatment (plain or beaded), floor option (plain or slatted) and turned post design.  The combinations are nearly endless and every design is uniquely suited to you and your home. 

The islands pictured below are just a few examples of countless possible designs that can be created with Dura Supreme's island table program.

Islands

In addition to our island table program, many homeowners and designers choose to create an island using a combination of cabinetry.  An island not only helps to separate the kitchen space from the living space within an open floor plan, but it adds much needed storage and countertop space.  The island can also be an ideal location for appliances (microwave, undercounter refrigerator, cooktop, etc.) or even an additional prep sink.  As a general rule, island cabinetry should be planned with at least 36" of space across from a wall, and at least 42" of space across from cabinetry (more space may be needed if there are appliances or swinging doors).  Your kitchen designer will have the expertise to design within your specific building codes to create a kitchen that works well for you.
