Do This With Your Kitchen Island For A More Open Design
Including an island in a small kitchen can be tricky because it means sacrificing a good amount of space. However, one with open shelving can make all the difference.
Whether you use the bottom of the island for storage or can get away with leaving it bare, it will make the space feel more open since seeing through the island will trick the eye.
Consider using slim, sleek, backless chairs to match the island's structure in openness. Baskets are another add-on that can help pull everything together.
Instead of leaving your plates or other kitchen items bare on the island shelves, store everything in matching storage baskets to maintain a cohesive, organized look.
