Kitchen island with wine cellar
Create more space to move around your kitchen by embedding the wine cellar in your kitchen island. An ingenious idea to keep your favorite red and white wines at hand (and at the right temperature). A festive touch in your new kitchen!
Since the wine cellar will have to be plugged in, a new electrical outlet must be installed by a qualified electrician who will respect the Régie du Bâtiment du Québec’s construction code.Source : Harvey Jones

Island with butcher block
The butcher block is made of individual strips of wood fused into an elegant slab. The wood species used for its manufacture are usually maple, cherry and black walnut. To clean it, simply apply one or two coats of mineral oil or worktop oil with a soft cloth every month. It is also possible to protect it with a GreenGuard certified clear varnish (absence of contaminants) to avoid premature wear and tear and to ensure the countertop’s impermeability.

Add a wood trim forming an “x” on the ends of your island to give your kitchen a farmhouse look. This addition is also in perfect harmony with the floor, also made of wood. In the photo above, it’s more of a farmhouse chic style with the quartz countertops and brushed gold hardware.Source : kitchenseer.com
Island with a contrast look
Matching the island with the cabinets and countertops will create symmetry in your kitchen. However, using different cabinet and/or countertop colors will provide a nice contrasting effect. As a result, the island will become the centerpiece of your new kitchen.Source : Palmerstone Design
