Ever since I can remember, its been my dream to live in a house with a stunning kitchen featuring a island.
I haven’t yet made that dream come true, so naturally I spend a lot more time than I care to admit, scrolling through Pinterest for inspiration and ideas for kitchen decor to imagine how my own kitchen will look one day.
So today I wanted to share with you some of the most beautiful kitchen islands that I have come across, to also help give you some house goals inspo 🏡
I really hope that you enjoy this post and can get some decor ideas if you’re in the process of buying or decorating your home.
15 Stunning Kitchen Island Decor Ideas
Starting with something super clean and simple I’m loving this kitchen using very traditional elements and colours such as white, brown leather, natural wood and glass pendant lighting.
I love the panelling on the sides of this island which give it a much more interesting finish than just standard wooden edges. This would be super simple to recreate on a handmade island or to add to your existing island.
This island incorporates a number of super modern trends including minimalism, grey colours, neutrals and gold hardware and accessories.
Create a totally unique looking kitchen with an island shaped like nothing you’ve ever seen before. This can be a great way to accommodate additional seating or storage space, or to comfortably fit in an awkwardly shaped kitchen.
It’s All About Lighting
The quirky pendant lights that these owners have chosen really set off this otherwise bland, neutrally decorated kitchen.
I love how everything is decorated in grey and stone colours with just a few hints of colour from the books, flowers and lighting.
Don’t Feel Blue 😜
If I had to pick, I would say that blue is my favourite colour for interior decor. I can’t take my eyes off this stunning navy and wood finished kitchen.
Double The Fun
Why have one kitchen island when you could have two?!
Get more storage and seating space by have two islands in your kitchen.
If you don’t want to utilize valuable cupboard space storing your pots and pans, then try hanging them from the ceiling on a rack above the island.
Green With Envy
I love the overall vibe of this kitchen and the way that the top half of the room is bright and airy, whilst the bottom half chooses darker colours. This in effect creates a much larger looking room and gives the impression of higher ceilings.
The forest green colour of the island is so sophisticated and creates a serious touch of class 💚
Compact & Practical
This compact, square shaped feature takes up minimal space, and offers so much functionality with space for drawers, shelves, appliances and even a sink!
Oh, Nice Curves 😉
If you want something a bit more unique, then why not go for a curved or abstractly shaped island rather than the typical rectangular choice?
This can also be a great way to make an island look more at home in an awkwardly shaped room.
If you love to stand out then why not make a statement by choosing a vibrant colour for your island.
Tone down the brightness by choosing lots of natural and white colours throughout the rest of the room.
I love the way the kitchen is almost all white but the cupboard doors are left natural to keep some really interesting contrast.
Notice how there are a few subtle accents of wood around the rest of the kitchen to tie the whole look together?
Small Kitchen? No Worries
This design is proof that no matter the size and shape of your kitchen, you’re almost guaranteed to be able to fit a island in somehow!
I’m in love with this design and the use of reclaimed wood to create panels with a super natural affect.
This is the first time I have seen this style used on an island and I think it creates a really mid century, farmhouse, modern vibe.
