Islands top the list of most-wanted improvements in a Wood Wise kitchen renovation. Careful planning is essential to make this centerpiece both look good and serve well. Will it include the sink or cooktop? Will there be cabinet doors or drawers for convenient storage and organization? How about the color: match the perimeter cabinet color or a contrasting stain or paint? Wood Wise designer Kathy Walker has carefully designed hundreds of islands to fit each homeowner’s specific need.
This large 2-tiered island features seating for seven. The lower level sink keeps the view tidy from the living room. The back side of the island is custom fitted with a raised dishwasher for easy-on-the-back loading and unloading.A mix of KraftMaid cabinet doors and drawers provide efficient access to most used utensils, with the microwave conveniently placed at the other end.
