Clever Islands

Float Your Island

Contemporary Floating Island

"The floating part came about because we have the work triangle on the backside of the island with the stove, refrigerator and in-island sink, and we wanted to incorporate an eat-in family space that's separate from the work area but still a part of the action.

 

"The style of the kitchen lends itself to the contemporary look of the floating island, which features stainless steel brackets and the sleek look of frosted rice paper in its base panels. The countertops at standard height are Corian, and the raised part is a blue CaesarStone that plays off of the backsplash's glass mosaic. It's floating because there's not a continuous support, just the stainless brackets that raise it up over countertop so they overlap. It's almost shaped like a comma, with a circular table area and two types of lighting that play off of the different parts of the island."
