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.
You can select the cabinetry based on the style you’re going for – rustic, contemporary, elegant or some combination of any two or all three. If the kitchen space is larger, you can even have a kitchen island installed. In a smaller area, you can still make the kitchen the heart of the home by utilising the space that the L shaped kitchen design leaves you to play around with.
There’s just one problem with this reasoning and that’s the economic principle called the law of diminishing returns. Diminishing returns is the concept where no matter how good something is, at some point the benefits begin to diminish. In the case of kitchens, I think diminishing returns takes hold after 1 kitchen island.
