The kitchen island is a necessary tool to enhance space and maximise storage in any kitchen, regardless of its size. In this homify feature, we look at 12 kitchen islands that are perfectly inspirational, from colour, detail and design. Kitchen islands work as extra storage or an informal dining area, allowing you to grab a quick cup of coffee as you head to work.

A wooden counter may not be the first choice for many, but it can be stylish, elegant and attractive. If treated and maintained, a wooden kitchen island can last a lifetime.

2. Simple

Keep your kitchen simple, trendy and tasteful for years to come.
