This is the case of those kitchen islands that have seating. By that we mean that they either have an extendable feature that allows them to be used as a table/desk/bar or that they have a design that allows them to be used as such. Some kitchen islands are a combination between a workspace and a table and they become a sort of hybrid with eye‐catching shapes and designs.We have prepared a selection of images of kitchen islands that respect all these criteria.
Want your backsplash to send a message? How about a stenciled design? That should do the trick. First apply spackle on the wall and let it dry overnight. Then paint the wall any color you want (in this case a dark chocolate tone). Then sponge on bronze metallic paint. Then comes the tricky part: the stenciling. You need to do some research and pick a technique. Also, be patient.
Even though this is an open floor plan kitchen so there aren’t any visible barriers between the spaces, it still has a compact look. The kitchen island is small and all the furniture comes together and created a cohesive and well‐balanced décor. The contrast between the crisp white details and the richness of the dark brown furniture is very elegant and beautiful.
A small dining bar for two to three persons can also be created by extending one of the counter tops along one side. Besides having enhanced work space when the dining bar is not being used, you will also have the exceptional benefit of using the space to serve breakfast or snacks to the kids.
A more dramatic look for a kitchen backsplash might be the next idea we present here. The amount of surface texture created with this project is amazing. The eye‐catching wall of stacked pebbles fits wonderfully in the natural lakeside style of the owner’s kitchen. If you want to create a backsplash like this and ensure your efforts result in the same finished look, you need to use only small pebbles which are roughly all an identical size. To keep the very natural appearance of the wall and avoid a heavy set in look, do not use visible grout around each stone, just enough on the hidden end to create floating stacks of pebbles. Keep it real, keep it natural.
