20 Beautiful Kitchen Island Designs With Columns

The kitchen is the most used room of any in the house. It is the main hub where your family gathers to meet, eat, and greet friends and guests. Think about how much time you spend in the kitchen and all that you use the room for, outside preparing and eating meals. You probably also spend time paying bills, doing homework with your kids, entertaining guests, visiting friends, among many other tasks. You want y our kitchen to be functional, but you also want it to feel warm and inviting so that you do want to spend quality time in it. One way that can really give your room more functionality and add character, is by adding an island that can be used for numerous jobs; such as chopping, meal preparation, allowing food to cool off on top of it and even added storage. Your island can be a beautiful centerpiece for your kitchen and really cat the attention of family and guests. if you are considering adding a beautiful island to your kitchen, why not consider one that has beautiful columns to give your island a dramatic effect. Depending on the height of the columns, it can also add visual height to the room to make it appear larger than it is. Here are some tips for choosing the right island and the right types of columns for your island.

1. Have a current island in the kitchen already?

Here’s the good thing, you don’t even have to buy a new island to get an island with columns. You can add your own columns to get a beautiful effect on its own. If you have a overhand over the island, attach columns to the corners of the island that extend all the way to the overhang. The project will change the look and feel of your kitchen and give you a nice focal point instead of just another, boring and dreary island.

2. No overhang?

If you don not have an over hang, you can just attach beautifully sculpted columns on all four corners that extend to the top of the counter. Perhaps there is only room to attach two columns on either side of the bar, and this is fine too. Anything goes, so just play with a few design ideas to see which ones work the best.

3. Customize the columns

Be creative when it comes to choosing the style and color of your columns. You may have a chic look and feel to your kitchen, a traditional décor, or a more modern kitchen. Whatever style you are going for, there are columns you can find or have designed, that will give you a more dramatic and updated appeal to your kitchen.
