2019 Kitchen Island Trends create gathering spaces for entertaining and increase functionality of space in the form of multi-level islands and movable islands.
2019 Kitchen Island Trends | Multi-Level Islands
Islands are being upgraded with dedicated dining space that is set apart by contrasting counters in different heights and materials, a table base and built-in banquette seating.
Karen Schone of Designers Point designed this multi-level island to include a Grothouse Walnut wood countertop as the table top and a granite countertop for the other section. The wood top is perfect for dining and the granite for food prep. If needed, the wood top can also be used for food prep.
Ahead of his time, Richard Thomas Anuszkiewicz designed this space featuring a multi-level island for the Liebherr booth last year at KBIS 2018. This island features a built-in banquette dining area. The table includes a Grothouse White Oak Bleached wood countertop with an Anvil Ferrum finished metal table base. The countertops on the other sections of the island were supplied by Kelya – Natural Collection by Dekton.
2019 Kitchen Island Trends | Movable Islands
Islands are handy as prep surfaces and extra seating, but they don’t need to be set in stone. In 2019, movable islands will grow in popularity as they offer flexibility when entertaining, and can be designed perfectly for small spaces.
This space was designed by Jon de la Cruz for House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year 2017. Grothouse American Black Walnut countertops and metal frames create the slim, movable island. The island ties in the matching Walnut wood shelves. and adds warmth to the white and black design.
