By the mid-20th century, larger homes and an increasing emphasis on entertaining added stools and snazzier designs to kitchen islands. Within a couple of decades, kitchens were boasting solid built-in center islands that were the belle of the kitchen ball, conversation pieces in their own right, and the precursors to today's hub-of-the-home kitchen islands.
If you are worried about running into corners, then work a countertop with rounded edges into your kitchen island plans, and if you are looking to save a bit of space, a circular or oval-shaped kitchen island could be the right direction. There are endless kitchen island designs available; to decide on the design you should think about what you are going to use your island for the most. Since they take up extra floor space, make sure it’s practical for you and works with your kitchen.
Successful islands can take many approaches in vintage homes: They can be modeled on early worktables and remain on the simple side, or appear as a a more solid piece of woodwork with turned legs or bun feet, as though evolved over time from a piece of furniture. They can integrate numerous bins, drawers, and cabinets, reminiscent of early Hoosier baking cabinets. They can even be comprised of a repurposed antique like a candy-store counter, pharmacy built-in, or dresser.
