Kitchen Islands

Idea 3: Two-Tier Island

Advantages

Islands with two levels add dimension and visual interest to a kitchen design. And when one of the levels is a raised dining bar, it hides the messy work of cooking from people in adjacent living areas.

 

 

Design Tip

Standard bar height is 42 inches, so look for 30-inch-high bar stools. Liven up the look by choosing stools in an accent color that matches the lighting fixtures, wall tile or paint, small appliances or window treatments.
