The kitchen island often occupies a central position, serving as a multifunctional piece of furniture. You can use it for storage, as a bar, breakfast area or as a prep space when cooking. Some islands even have built-in sinks. It’s up to you to decide which elements are most important.
There’s a time to be practical and there’s a time to look beautiful. When discussing interior design, it’s not a matter of choice but rather an issue of finding the right way to combine these two approaches and to use them harmoniously. The kitchen design presents a series of particular challenges in this sense. This is where you have to be precise in making the most of the available space and in focusing on functionality without neglecting style.
A French country kitchen will often, although not always, incorporate a farmhouse- (or apron-) style sink into its design. Even amidst other elegant touches, this simple sink orm looks perfectly at ease. A luxurious detail but one that makes sense with the large-gathering focus of a French country kitchen is the wall-mounted pot filler faucet, installed above the stove. This is a traditional feature that has disappeared in standard kitchens, but it’s quite useful for the family chef!
For an automatic warm, country feel, use beadboard (or tongue-and-groove) facings on vertical surfaces. Ideas for beadboard placement include cabinet doors, kitchen island walls, or even the backsplash. They don’t have to steal the show, but iron details (think cast iron or wrought iron touches) in a French country kitchen are a must. Iron appears to be used on much of the lighting here (the pendant lanterns and lighting flanking the kitchen sink), and it finishes off the whole look.
With so many different types of kitchen island designs to choose from, it can prove difficult to pick a style. If you prefer something casual with a bit of rustic and industrial flair, perhaps the open design featured here by would be a suitable choice. It’s hard to resist not being seduced by this glamorous kitchen when you lay eyes on the stylish combination of black subway wall tiles and brass fixtures. The sink matches the drawer pulls and cabinet hardware and all these details look exquisite when placed on a black background. This is a design.
