If you happen to own an interesting piece like this, not only will it make a statement, it will also provide good storage. In this kitchen, a cabinetmaker added storage onto the back, making it even more useful. Having a countertop made to follow the lines of the piece gives it an especially nice, custom look. Prices for buffets are all over the place. You might be able to find a small one for under $100, but the bigger, more ornate pieces can go for $700 and up.
Steampunk near Boston. In this Massachusetts Victorian, homeowner Bruce Rosenbaum embraces all things steampunk. He integrated modern technology, period pieces and architectural salvage throughout the house. Ingenuity is seen with every turn of the head, and this one-of-a-kind kitchen island is no exception. It’s made from an early-20th-century printer’s desk — just one example of how he’s used vintage materials in unexpected ways.
Metal And Wood Kitchen Islands. Metal and wood is a perfect combo for an industrial kitchen island; such a piece will bring a more vintage feel to the space, and if you need it – go for pipes and a wooden countertop, this is a win-win combo. Add casters to make the island portable and make some shelves for storage – and you’ll get a super functional piece to rock!
Kitchen‐islands offer more than additional workroom. As the kitchen changed from a devoted cooking room to a gathering location for family or friends, so did the kitchen‐island. Surely, hanging out in the kitchen isn't new, however, it was frequently a crowded issue.
