Take advantage of being able to use the space above the island by adding suspended storage, where you can display a matching pan collection or your best stemware.

Kitchen islands with open shelves come in a diverse range of styles, forms and finishes, and if you do not find what you are looking for in the market, there are always bespoke solutions that one can turn to. These 50 exquisite kitchen islands with open shelving should inspire you to reconsider your kitchen design as well!
Whether your space lacks a proper dining table or you’re looking to create a more casual bar-seating option, adding low-profile seating to the island is an easy way to increase functionality and make the environment more social for both guests and the cook. Create a breakfast bar or dining table, and leave a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath when not in use.
