Island Kitchen Table

This table-style island’s marble countertop makes it more island-like (it would read very differently with a wood top), and the counter stools have backs, making them look a bit more like chairs. Three pendants overhead is more likely to be seen over an island than a kitchen table. It’s the seating on both sides of the island and the lack of closed cabinet storage that really makes an island look like a table. Tip: For more of a dining-room feel, opt for a chandelier instead of pendants.

Help me decide what to do in my own kitchen! I’ve been looking for examples of the table-style island lately. We had a fire in our house last year, and we’re currently in the process of rebuilding. It’s a small city coachhouse and therefore has limited space, so we were originally thinking of putting our dining table in the kitchen instead of an island. But now we’re considering a table-style island to give us a little more workspace at counter height. I’m hesitant to give up a dining table, but I’m being swayed. An island with seating all around could be the solution. What would you do? More: Ideas for L-Shaped Kitchens Ideas for U-Shaped Kitchens

Sometimes the kitchen island is also used as a breakfast area or table. Because of that, a special type of design has been developed. It’s a kitchen island and it’s also a table. These two pieces have been combined to create a very clever and functional mix that beautifully complements any kitchen. And just like in the case of any other piece of furniture, this type of kitchen island and table combo also comes in a variety of designs, shapes, sizes and colors.

Well, I suppose we all have our own quirks. 🙂 I would consider an island/table a waste of valuable storage space. Being a gadget maniac, one can never have enough storage space. I have also never liked perching on a stool, (maybe because I am a shorty, with short legs) so would want the table I eat on to be table height. So, out of all the samples above, I only like Elad Gonen’s because it is table height, but still looks like is is part of the kitchen. However, I suppose my perfect solution would be an island with storage underneath and and extension (possibly L shaped) that is table height. I’d want chairs that can be pushed in completely, so they are not in the way, when not in use. In a perfect world, I would have a completely separate table, maybe not very big, just big enough for the family that lives in the house. With visitors, one can move proceedings to the dining room (or, on second thoughts, one could get an extendible table)

The now-ubiquitous island began making an appearance in kitchens as early as the 1950s. Over the years, islands have risen to the top of kitchen wish lists during house hunts and renovations. Recently, however, more people are entertaining the idea of substituting the island with a large table instead. Perhaps this trend has been inspired by the renewed love affair with the American farmhouse or the desire to bring back nostalgic ideals embodied by the old-style “eat-in” kitchen. The pros of having a kitchen island are numerous, and the feature isn’t going away in the foreseeable future. But for those in a position to decide between the two, here’s the case for the eat-in kitchen table.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo lisagonzal1 I love this article! Very helpful. My husband and I want to remodel our kitchen this summer. We were thinking of knocking down a wall in the kitchen, making a large island / kitchen table and extend the cabinets and island into the dining room, and getting rid of our dining room table. No one ever sits at the dining room. Everyone hovers around the kitchen and family room area. It’ll look more open with the wall down. We are planning a family as well so would like an area where everyone can hang out. We have a “living” room downstairs that was converted to room with a French door so we can covert that to a dining room (for resale purposes) 1 Like February 10, 2017 at 5:48AM

Callender Howorth In a closed-off kitchen like this, a table is often the most practical choice when there’s no room for both an island and a smaller nook table. This is in contrast to the layout prevalent in typical new-construction homes featuring an island paired with an adjacent nook meant for a smaller table, with the larger table set nearby in the dining room.
