Adding a Kitchen Island with Marble Countertops
In kitchens with limited counter space, installing an island can be the answer to your space problems. Limited counter space can make an otherwise great kitchen frustrating. In this kitchen, limited wall space led to limited work space...until the kitchen island was added. This L-shaped kitchen with limited wall space is still able to provide a good-sized and very functional cooking environment. Thanks to a lengthy island, the relatively narrow kitchen achieves an abundance of counter space where it would otherwise have been lacking. This addition makes it easy to create thee or four work stations on the marble counters that are all in close proximity to the sink, gas range, built-in microwave, side-by-side refrigerator and double oven. The hard wood floors, which are softer and more forgiving than tile, make it more confortable to stand for long stretches for ambitious culinary adventures, and provide a softer landing for the inevitable dropped dish. The richly-colored cherry cabinets and drawers bring out the natural autumn colors of the marble counters and matching back splash, and blend nicely with the wood floors.
