Industrial Kitchen Island

Lay standard-sized tiles in a herringbone pattern for a bespoke look.

This island was built from butcherblock countertops cut down to size. Pairing the wood with a steel frame gives the piece an industrial farmhouse vibe. Its open storage is perfect for large pots and gives the kitchen a relaxed, unfitted feel. Moving the fridge closer to the stove created the work triangle homeowner Pam MacGillivray wanted. Double ovens accommodate the homeowners' youngest daughter's baking projects. An overall neutral colour scheme gives the room a timeless look.
