Repurposed buffets, a rather plentiful item at antique stores is the vintage buffet. The 1960s versions are usually rather dowdy looking in their original wood finish, but give it a coat of paint and voilà — a whole new look. If you are going to paint it, you don’t need to find a pristine piece, either, meaning the price will be lower. Because furniture is rarely finished on the back, consider how you can finish this to fit both the piece and your kitchen, and whether you’ll need a carpenter’s help.
The heart of many of these homes is the kitchen, of course. And the heart of the kitchen is often the island. Whether using reclaimed materials from their own construction sites, refashioning vintage furniture or discovering clever Ikea hacks, the My Labottedoro homeowners we’ve featured have built their islands to suit very individual lifestyles and tastes. Here are 20 great examples.
Add more counter space. Keep it simple while adding value by using an island to significantly increase the amount of counter space in your kitchen. Having more counter space adds obvious benefits: more room for meal prep, multiple chefs and can serve as an eating area. Create contrast by using a different material or color for the island counters than you did in the rest of the room. If your regular countertops are white quartz, try black or a dark stained wood for the island.
Applying custom kitchen–islands means having the greatest suited island for your house along with kitchen room based on your kitchen room plus your wants. Here are kitchen—islands ideas. In seeing numerous kinds of kitchen, it’s deceptive that kitchen—islands have improved an enormous amount over time.
