Show me your island w/o sink or cooktop

Could you please post pics of your islands without sinks or cooktops? More specifically, looking for pictures showing the drawer / cabinet configurations - not just the "beauty" shots. Thank you!

To Island or Not To Island: Floorplan Feedback Requested

posted by: stephandtim on 04.03.2014 at 05:30 pm in Kitchens Forum

We've lived in our house for almost 7 years and have been talking about a kitchen reno almost as long. We are ready to go crazy and get rid of a wall. Now we just need to figure out what to put where.

The room is roughly 13.5' by 13.5'.

We are planning to gain a pantry by stealing the office area from the master bedroom behind. One end of the room will be open to the dining area/great room and the other end has 6 ft french doors to the backyard. There is currently a small window over the sink that we want to make a lot bigger.

Here's the current idea. Leaves 42" aisles on either side of the island.

Thoughts? Thanks for the feedback!

PS - I'll post a picture of the current once I clean up a little. :)

RE: What does this room need? (Follow-Up #2)

Something small & decorative on either side of the large picture. Maybe mirrored sconces with candles? Or I can also see small plates that are hung with ribbons (the kind with open lattice type perimeters).

I'd also move the plant to the left of the mirror.

Otherwise, I think the rug will do it make it look more finished.

I love what we can see of your mantel and the green from the next room is very pretty.

Ok, ready for step 2.

Ok, I have the new rug down. What do you think compared to the first?

and what would you focus your attention on next? I have new lighting, coffee/end tables and throw pillows on my list "to do".
