Adding marble to the kitchen can be an expensive affair and requires plenty of care. Not every kitchen is ready for a marble upgrade, and if your home sees plenty of traffic with kids and pets constantly around, then you might want to reconsider choosing marble for the kitchen island. Marble both stains and etches easily, and anything acidic can quickly leave behind permanent damage. All it takes is one spill that is not instantly cleaned and your marble countertop can start losing both its sheen and visual appeal.
If your kitchen is lacking storage areas, a kitchen island may solve your problem. With the option of additional drawers, pull out shelves, and cabinets, the island is an extension to your existing casework. Ever thought you didn’t have enough room for recycling bins? Under a kitchen island makes a great accessible space because it doesn’t interfere with the main preparation area of the rest of the kitchen.
Curved and Organically Shaped Kitchen Countertops, If you’d like to break up all the straight lines in a contemporary kitchen, add a little curve to your countertop design. A curve, especially in the seating area, creates an inviting, communal place where it’s easier to sit and have a face-to-face conversation with each other.
