Clever Islands

Triple Tiers

Kitchen Island with Three Levels
Courtesy of Westborough Design Center, Inc.

"This kitchen is quite unique as it contains three levels. The first level, at 42 inches, is located near the cooktop and houses the microwave. It's a fairly small L-shaped kitchen, so it was a challenge as to where to put the microwave; placing it in the highest level kept convenience and counter space in mind. The second level is at standard kitchen countertop height, 36 inches, and is used for prep area and storage. Both top levels are finished with a granite countertop.

"The third level is not only a different height than the others, but also a different material. It is situated at 30 inches in height and consists of a round wood top supported by a pedestal that matches the island color (the wood top matches the stain of the kitchen cabinets). It's used as the kitchen table, as the room opens into a large great room just beyond it. The light paint on the island defines the island, while simultaneously separating the island from the rest of the kitchen."
