Contemporary Kitchen Island

Create extra workspace with an oversized island.

Tall, elegant French doors fill the airy kitchen with light, which is enhanced by light from a stunning polished-nickel light fixture above the walnut island. Set slightly above the top of the island, a large chopping block becomes a design feature in its own right. During parties, the island is the perfect spot to set up a buffet. Pale engineered oak flooring has a casual aesthetic.
